Mothers’ Union
Thank you to everyone who supported the refreshments provided by the Mothers’ Union at the Seaview street fayre on 24th August. We raised £68.50 towards MU projects.

Memorial Gardens
From the Lichgate to the entrance to St Helen’s Church, there are two small flower beds, one on either side of the path, which the PCC would like to make into memorial gardens. The cultivating, fertilizing, the purchase and planting of rose trees, and then engraving on a commemorative plaque would cost £35.00 for each rose tree. If you would like to contribute to this project, and have a rose tree in memory of a loved one, please speak to Sue [churchyard manager] or phone her on 01983 568761 for more details.
It is hoped the project will start in the Autumn.
