Decorated Egg Competition

News Category: 

Parish

An good display of decorated eggs made for a difficult decision by the judge, but once again, the Bainbridge family of King’s Cliffe could not be beaten.  Jack Bainbridge took the Pre-School award and his sister Bethany the Upper Junior award.  In the Lower Juniors Hannah Williams claimed the prize and the joint winners of the adult section were Pat Teall of Blatherwycke and Chris Klompass of King’s Cliffe.  A great effort by everyone, well done.

The Gift Morning was held in St Nicholas Church on Saturday 23rd March and parishioners braved the dreadful weather to pledge their support for the upkeep of the church.  Donations are still being submitted and all will help with the maintenance of our Grade 1 listed Parish Church.

The Children's Society

Benefice

Mrs Louise Bowen-West is now the secretary for The Children’s Society for our Church and Parish in King’s Cliffe.  Louise will also look after the Community Box in the King’s Cliffe Shopper.

The Society helps children and young people in the United Kingdom whose lives away from home are lonely and frightening.  Many children leave home when they cannot cope with changes there such as their parents splitting up or new partners moving in.

We make our contribution to help these youngsters by collecting our loose change, 10p’s and 50p’s:  the King’s Cliffe Shopper kindly have a Community Box on their counter which has recently realised over £42.00.

Thank you for your contribution for children whose lives are not as safe and loved as our own.  Mrs Bowen-West has the blue boxes if anyone would like one in their home in which to save their contribution for children rescued and befriended by the Children’s Society.  Louise lives at 22 Park Street, King’s Cliffe and her phone number is 01780 470502

Christian Aid

News Category: 

Benefice

Christian Aid Week is coming round again – this year from 12th to 18th May.  This is such a good charity to support because it helps the really poor and starving people of the world to help themselves.

This year Christian Aid is concentrating on three countries:

In Zimbabwe farming is badly affected by drought and Christian Aid is encouraging the building of dams which supply clean water which is so desperately needed.

In Kenya farming is severely hampered by the inefficient local weather forecasts.  Christian Aid has devised a plan to improve local forecasts by means of text messaging on mobile phones.  This enables farmers to sow their crops at a more appropriate time.

In Bolivia Christian Aid has helped the local people to obtain the legal title deeds to the land so that they can cultivate the cocoa trees which are their main crop.

A small red envelope will be put through your letter box in which you can place a donation.  Please give as generously as you can to those who find it hard to get enough to eat not only in Zimbabwe, Kenya and Bolivia but also in so many other countries.

For other ways to support Christian Aid, please see the advertisements in events.

Easter Egg Hunt

News Category: 

Benefice

Thank you to all of the children and young people who brought along parents, grandparents and friends to enjoy the Church Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday.  We all had a happy if cold afternoon and were able to give £107 to Church funds.

A very big thank you to everyone who provided cakes and biscuits for tea, and to the very kind people who stood around in the cold serving teas, and generally making sure that everyone had a very sociable afternoon.
