Don't forget your Christmas orders!
It's not too late to send in your order, it will be ready for you in church.
There are also order forms in church.

How to win a prize!

Because of recent restrictions on the number of people in the church hall, we can't hold our usual Christmas market.
So we're looking at other ways to help our fund-raising. Buy a ticket for our tombola and win a prize!
Tickets available at church or contact

But our usual home-made items will still be available to buy, see above.
The next concert by the Un Autre Souffle organisation takes place on Saturday evening 9 December at the Protestant church.
