WW1 Centenary - Blatherwycke

News Category: 

Parish

A very successful Bring and Share lunch was held in the garden of Ron and Mary Champion on Saturday 2nd August.  A wide cross section of villagers enjoyed a convivial afternoon of food and fellowship despite the showers.  Thanks to Ron and Mary for their hospitality and to Gill and Tim from Number 23 for the loan of their splendid gazebo which kept us all dry.

On the following evening there was a Vigil in Holy Trinity Church to commemorate the Centenary of Britain entering the First World War.

Benefice

We are looking for volunteers to knit a flock of sheep which the pre-school children can carry during the nativity play each Christmas in King’s Cliffe church.  Copies of the pattern and examples of the sheep are available on the windowsill in the CHAOS room in King’s Cliffe church (behind the screen on the right-hand side) or you can download a copy by clicking on the link below.

The pattern is very easy so do please have a go.  If you are not a knitter but would still like to help contributions towards the cost of the materials would be greatly appreciated.

The Corby Male Voice Choir concert on the 19th July in St Nicholas church proved to be a most enjoyable occasion.  Many thanks to all who attended, those who helped and those who donated raffle prizes.  A total profit of £253 was raised for church funds and it is hoped that the choir will return in 2015.

Benefice

On a beautiful day in July, we set off on our annual outing.  We called first at the Van Hage Garden Centre at Eye and then continued on to John Clare’s Cottage at Helpston.  We enjoyed an appetizing lunch and a brief talk about the life and poetry of John Clare before undertaking a tour of the cottage and gardens.  We concluded our visit with a welcome afternoon tea.
