WILLOW WOOD HOSPICE WALK – Margaret Buckly is taking part in the Midnight Walk for the Hospice. If you would like to sponsor her there is a list in the porch; last year we helped her to raise £311.00 pounds.

WHIT FRIDAY PROCESSION – Many thanks to all for making the procession a happy occasion; everything went swimmingly- with even a dash of panache! The weather was kind, not too hot and not too cold, and we covered the route at a canter. The men who carried the banners and statues probably lost a few pounds in weight. The flower ladies (floral experts) burnt the midnight oil decorating Our Lady and St Joseph, but their results were stunning. A pity we couldn’t provide refreshments afterwards- we’ll have to work on that. Any photographs of the procession can be sent to Brian who looks after the website.

DIAMOND JUBILEE BARBECUE – Tuesday around 5pm. The forecast is a little uncertain at present- bring a fleece and wellingtons just in case! The back garden will be better in the evening, and anyone at a loose-end is welcome to join us.

THE LION KING – theatre outing in February, 2013, for this award winning musical. There is a list in the porch.

A CHANCE TO RELAX – it is not often that workers get four whole days off the treadmill, so hopefully, parishioners will be able to put their feet up. And the children are off school for a fortnight. The heatwave has bid farewell; perhaps it will return later in the year. Last weekend was certainly a corker and it was lovely to see people sitting in their gardens just watching the grass grow! So, an historic weekend and ‘flaming June’ to enjoy

NOTICE OUTSIDE A YOUTH HOSTEL -‘If you can’t see the fells then it’s raining and if you can see the fells then it’s going to rain!

DARK HUMOUR – ‘ a man fell off the 50th floor of a skyscraper. As he passed the 15th floor, some friends shouted out, ‘How are things?’ ‘All right so far’, he replied.
