Our first bit of news this week is that the St Andrews Autumn Fair has been cancelled. The church will re-organise at a later date. This Sunday St Andrews will have a lay led Songs of Praise service with hymns and readings chosen by the congregation, and this time its a memorial service for those who have been bereaved recently or not so recently. Everyone is welcome to attend and there will be refreshments served after the service. The service will start at the usual time of 11am.
The Knit and Natter sessions held in the Pub are now switching to a new time of 10.30am every Monday. Why not pop along and try your hand at some knitting or perhaps some crochet – these friendly sessions are open to everyone and are just for an hour or so.
The bus timetable is now being revised from the 29th of this month when the new single deckers take over the routes on the No 3 service which operates through our village. There will be one or two changes especially for the youngsters using the buses for school transport. Copies of the new timetables are available on the village website.
