Thank you

Parish

A very big thank you to all who help to keep the church and churchyard in good order: the ‘Holy Dusters’ who assist with the church cleaning, the clock winder, the flower arrangers, the Parish Gazette deliverers, those who help with fund raising and many more too numerous to mention.  Thank you for all your help and support and best wishes for 2013.

 

Remembrance Day Service

News Category: 

Parish

The Remembrance Service was held in St Nicholas Church on Sunday 11th November.  The service was well attended and, thankfully, the weather remained fine and dry for the congregation to gather around the war memorial in the churchyard.  Rev Karin placed the wreath on the memorial on behalf of Bulwick, Blatherwycke and Laxton parishes. The lesson was read by Pat Teall and a very poignant poem - The Bombers by Sarah Churchill - was read by Heather Harrison.  The service was conducted by the Benefice Reader David Teall with Rev Karin Voth Harman giving the homily.  Churchwardens Alma O’Neill and Rupert Boyle read the List of the Fallen, Jonathan Mack was the organist and Lloyd Preston the bugler.

 

Presentation to Heather Cromie

Benefice

After our morning service on 4th November a presentation was made to Heather Cromie who, for so many years, has given her time and culinary skills to support the Church fund-raising group.  Heather, of course, has always had the help and support of Brian, and so we thanked him too.

Heather has decided to ‘hang up her apron’ so to speak, and spend time relaxing a bit more!  However, she tells me that she will still be making shortbread and marmalade for us all to enjoy and I will not be at all surprised if we will still be able to enjoy the occasional Shepherds’ Pie or two at Social functions!

Bonfire and Fireworks

A great family evening was enjoyed by a happy crowd in the Rectory garden.  Our many thanks to Graham and his ‘rocketeers’ for giving us such a wonderful firework display and to Charles and Kevin for building a wonderful bonfire.

We all enjoyed mulled wine and hot dogs, a very big thank you to all who worked so hard on the night and before to make it a memorable evening.  A special thanks to Angie at the Post Office who ran a ‘box office’ for us for ticket sales.  We are able to give £994.48 to Church funds.  Thank you also to all who supported the evening with your attendance.
