ST MARY’S CHURCH, BETTWS-Y-CRWYN
Many thanks to Valerie and Richard for hosting the September Coffee Morning at The Quabbs Cottage on a fine morning in our late-lamented Indian Summer. The 100 Club draw, as you will remember, was drawn in August, thereby releasing Peter for his honeymoon with Josie.
Sadly, no-one has come forward to host November Coffee Morning and, by the time you read this, the 100 Club Draws for November and December will have been held at the October Coffee Morning in the Parish Hall.
The lack of a Coffee Morning highlights the always precarious state of the Church finances and underlines our continuing need for fundraisers. If anyone has any good ideas for fundraisers, please do contact Valerie Whately at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sheila Davies on 01686 670627.
On Friday 22nd November the winter season of Flicks in the Sticks at the Bettws continues with a film that has already attracted widespread attention, Rocketman: based on a true fantasy, this follows the spectacular journey of transformation of Reginald Dwight from shy piano prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music, through his influential, enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin, into becoming flamboyant international superstar Elton John. It stars Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard. Take-off is at 7.30 pm. For further info, contact 01588 640233.
Please make a note in your diary of the Carol Service on Sunday 22nd December at 7.00 pm.
Flowers and Cleaning for November: Valerie Whately and Josie Compton Morris.
We are always grateful for contributions to the Parish Magazine. They should be sent to me by the 13th of each month, please: email@example.com or phone 01547 510619.
