Thank you to all who came, and all who helped make this such an enjoyable evening. In addition the sum of £272.90 was raised for our Parish Projects (Mary’s Meals and Sixty One).

2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War.
Join us after Mass in our Church Hall to watch the live broadcast of the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in London, followed by a Curry Lunch and the ringing of our church bell.
Throughout the world, bells of all kinds – church, military or any other – are invited by the British Government with the support of the German Government to ring out at 12:30hrs GMT to replicate the spontaneous outpouring of relief that took place in 1918.
All are welcome.
Corsham Foodbank particularly needs the following both now and for Christmas: sponge pudding, rice pudding, rice, custard, tinned fruit,
tinned meat, tinned vegetables, UHT milk.
They would also love to be able to make up Christmas Hampers
including the following: Christmas puddings, Christmas cakes, mince pies, boxes of biscuits, boxes of sweets,
Plus – whatever you like!
They will make up the Hampers on 8 December so those donations would be appreciated during November.
Thank you for your continuing generosity
Traidcraft sales last weekend were £85 – thank you all!
Sadly, Traidcraft have informed us that in the current difficult economic climate and because of recent poor trading figures they could be forced to cease trading on 31st December 2018 unless a solution can be found in the coming month. They tell us that it is vitally important to have a very good autumn season if they are to continue and have appealed for people to buy as much as possible from Traidcraft and perhaps to also buy some of their Christmas cards and Advent calendars. If they cease trading, it will obviously be devastating for their third world producers and all the Traidcraft staff in Gateshead who will be made redundant.
So, please consider buying items over the next couple of months as we have lots of stock.
Our next general sale will be on the weekend of 3/4 November, and Advent Calenders and cards are now available each weekend.
Since 2004, we have turned over £21,000!
Collecions last weekend raised £799.63.
Many thanks to all who donated and supported CAFOD’s work in this way.
Applications are invited for a Fixed Term post for a School Projects Officer – to support the Director and

Position initially for fixed 2 year period, term time only.
Closing Date 17th October, 2018
Last week’s Preloved Sale raised a total of £250 for our Parish Projects.
Many thanks to all who helped and all who supported this event.
If you would like to order a parish diary for 2019, please add your name to the list on the noticeboard in the Lady Chapel.
