THANK YOU to everyone who has donated towards the cost of flowers in church. Donations are welcome at any time of the year - please hand to myself or the Wardens, or place in a clearly marked envelope in the collection/donations box. Please indicate if you would like your gift to be used on a specific date to commemorate a life event. Gillian Jones.

PRAYER CHAIN - If you need prayer for yourself or another then there is a team of people ready to pray. For Locking, please contact Christine Sceeny phone 822331 or for Hutton Kay Cole phone 811424 and they will send out the prayer request. It would be lovely to know how the person we are praying for is getting on, or whether they still need more prayer. It is a great encouragement for us all to hear that God is answering our prayers, please send feedback to Christine or Kay. Thank you.

PERSONAL SECURITY At the recent Women's Fellowship afternoon the talk by our PCSOs was about all sorts of personal safety. Please help Yourself to some literature which may be of interest and is at the back of Church (Hutton) or on the bench in the porch (Locking).
