Here we are again after last week’s break. This week has the last opportunity to enjoy a local delicacy for a while; the last Soup and Puds for this season will be held in the hall tomorrow, Saturday 11th March. Our local ladies will be cooking up a storm to provide a delicious choice of home-made soup and scrummy puds served with tea and coffee. At just £5, this has to be good value and supports our hall! The event starts at 12.30pm -2pm, well done to Jenny, Jan, Maggie and everyone who has made a supreme effort to feed us all so royally over the winter periods, you have been great!
Looking forward to next Saturday, our W.I ladies have their coffee morning in the village hall at 10.30am. There will be all the usual stalls, white elephant, toys, books and of course coffee and biscuits too. So come and support our ladies in their efforts to raise funds for our group. The ladies meet regularly on the second Thursday of each month and always welcome guests and new members.
Dinah has secured some lovely local cauliflowers for the village shop from a grower in Bigbury. They are a lovely quality and are on sale at just 50p each, which seems something of a bargain!Nice to see A.G bucking the trend and there’s no danger of a veg shortage here!
The Lupridge singers have joined with Stanborough Chorus for a concert on March 26th and are proud to announce that internationally renowned tenor Neil Jenkins will be performing with them. The concert takes place in St Michael and All Angels Church in Stokenham. They will be performing Benjamin Britten’s St Nicholas and Haydn’s Little Organ Mass, and tickets for this wonderful event will be available at Kingsbridge T.I.C. at £15 each.
St Andrews is continuing the Lent course which is held on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm. This year’s course is studying the Bible in depth, and anyone is welcome to come and join in. This week’s service in St Andrew’s will be Sung Communion with Neil Barker starting at the usual time of 11am.
I had a wonderful time in Israel, visiting the places where Jesus walked, and I had wonderful company with the group of folk led by Rev, Taylor. I made some good friends and I think we all took something very positive from the experience. Our gifts for the children in Jeel-al-Amal children’s home were very gratefully received. I have been asked to put some photos of our visit on the village website which I will do soon.
