The Week from the Administrator's Desk

And I would walk . . .

Hi all,

This Sunday the 8.00am Zoom service will continue as usual, C@H will air on YouTube at 10.00am, but no coffee or Kids@Home until next Sunday.

There are events planned as a mark of respect for the Duke of Edinburgh tomorrow, please refer to the attached sheet for more information.

 

There will be a Zoom service at 9.45am, and the service sheet is attached to this email too.

The bells will be tolled in Oakley and Wootton from 2.00 - 2.55pm.

Private Prayer resumes next week in both churches, days and times remain unchanged. 

The APCM date of 26 April draws closer and we hope that as many people as possible will attend.

 

We are still inviting applications and nominations for the Church Council.

 

Do you have a skill or area of expertise to offer the group, or do you feel you can see things differently from other people?

 

Perhaps you just want to find out more about how the church is run?

 

Everyone is welcome to join this committee if you are over 18 and on the electoral roll, and are nominated and seconded. If more people apply than spaces there will be an election.

Everyone is back next week and operating as normal, well…..

Please don’t forget that the office is now closed on Wednesdays.

I’ve reached an important milestone on my Land’s End to John O’Groats walk as I have reached 500 miles - (cue the humming of the Proclaimers song...) yet I am still not halfway – sigh!

 

I signed up to walk it in a year, but really hope to finish it whilst on a sponsored marathon (walk!) in the middle of July.

 

I’ve ben grateful for the warmer sunny weather this week as that keeps me outdoors longer, and I have walked a lot of miles (69) this week so far.

 

This means that I am nearly at Worksop woop woop! (Where I hear you ask?) North of Nottingham, south of Sheffield.

I finally planted my seed potatoes this week, a tad late as they were beginning to form leaves on my kitchen windowsill..

 

I’m sad that most of my daffodils are going over, but some tete a tete ones are in bud, and I have a lot of tulips about to open too.

 

I need to dust off the lawnmower and the hedge trimmer, and unearth my broom too!

 

I love this time of year with all it’s preparations for the summer.

 

Let’s hope this heralds some sociable times in the garden, some sunny weather and a bumper crop of spuds eh?

Not sure of my weekend plans yet, but am sure they will include housework, walking and watching the funeral on the tv.

 

Stay safe whatever you are doing…

Love Px
