On 3rd May parishioners from King's Cliffe and the nearby villages gathered in the Parish Church to question activists on their views on the coming In-Out Referendum on our place in the EU.

Knitters Needed

News Category: 

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.

Benefice

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.

 

Women's Fellowship

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.

 

Second Annual King’s Cliffe Plant Fayre

News Category: 

Benefice

A huge thank you to all those who attended and supported the plant sale at ‘The Walnuts’ on the 12th May.  A tremendous £1521 was raised on the day!

As predicted the heavens opened and an impromptu rendition of ‘Singing in the Rain’ was considered.  We even contemplated taking shelter in the aptly re-named ‘bird palace’ donated to the raffle. But, in true ‘Cliffe’ style, well over 150 people brought out their brollies and purchased a fantastic array of lovingly nurtured plants kindly donated by the King’s Cliffe Gardeners’ Association.

Sadly, many a diet bit the dust thanks to a deliciously tempting (and never-ending) supply of homemade cakes, biscuits and hot drinks.  The village tots made some very scary insect fridge magnets, while the older children were getting in early practice for a rainy Wimbledon.  Some super raffle prizes were generously donated by local businesses.

Finally, thank you to the wonderful ladies and gentlemen who helped (in every capacity) to make the day a success, especially to the Macleod’s for offering their beautiful garden as a venue.
