RAFT RACE ~ VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
We will be taking a tombola stall at the raft race on Sunday 6th August. Ideally 6 people are required for this so that no one has to man the stall all day. We are also providing people to help with traffic management: Simon Marshall is looking for 6 volunteers for this from 9.30am onwards. Can you help? It is important that we have a presence at all community events. There will also be a Churches Together stall and an act of worship will be taking place – see Kate Drewett or Jan Fisk if you can help with any of these activities!
TESCO COMMUNITY FUND
If you shop at Tesco’s, please make sure you get a token to vote for Tesco supporting the Priory Hall repairs which we so desperately need! We stand to get either £4,000, £2,000 or £1,000, depending on whether we come first, second or third in the Community Fund stakes.
