Through the Week at St Peter's
Our new list for 2021/2022 is on the porch notice board. Would you like to fund or contribute towards the cost of flowers one week -perhaps you have a special date of celebration or memorial? Please put your name on the list by your preferred date. Debbie Walsh and Margaret Spicer are able to arrange the flowers if you are unable to do them yourself. If you are not attending Church at the moment you can phone us to put your name on the list.
Father Benedict, our former ordinand, has been in touch, wishing us a Blessed Easter. He is now a deacon, serving as curate in Canton Benefice and has issued an invitation to anyone at St Peter’s who is interested in joining their discussion Group “Encounter”. They meet fortnightly on Wednesday evenings (7.30pm-9.00pm) via Zoom. They have covered a few themes so far. On 14th April they will have a one off discussion on the Resurrection, and then for the following sessions later in the month they will be looking at a York course themed around eco-Church. If anyone would be interested in joining them, please contact him & he will put you on the mailing list. email@example.com
Those who watched Songs of Praise on Easter Day were very impressed by the contribution of Ian, Maggie and Margaret Smith in the feature on our Community Garden. Margaret Spicer, Rob and Dennis could be seen working hard in the background, and our gardens looked huge! The Spring flowers looked beautiful and the ducks turned up right on cue – apparently there was a scramble by the film crew to get to the pond when they were spotted! You can still catch up on i player if you missed it.
HALL AND GARDEN NEWS
We are pleased to announce the appointment of two people to the 3 year posts created as a result of our successful grant application.
Rachel Wyatt is to be our Community Garden Project Development Officer.
Rachel Payne is to be our Community Hall Manager -
many of you know her as she has been booking secretary and dealing with general administration in the Hall on a voluntary basis over the last year.
We look forward to meeting them both when the Hall and Gardens are open again.
We have just been given permission to open the Garden under strict Covid guidelines to a limited number of volunteers. The Hall & Gardens team will be assessing and preparing the Volunteer Centre and Garden over the next couple of weeks, so that there is a safe and secure environment for the volunteers.
