Christian Aid Week 2024

A huge thank you to everyone who helped and who gave during Christian Aid Week this year. We raised £1,794.45, including Gift Aid. If you pay income tax, it’s always good to Gift Aid your charitable giving – the tax reclaimed adds another 25% to your gift!

The Banovallum Singers return to Potterhanworth for another summer concert. Tickets are £8, to include strawberries and cream and a glass of fizz.

Walking the walk...

We’re bringing back the summer pub walks! They’re not long treks, just a gentle three miles or so, then lunch in the pub. And if you’re not up to walking at the moment – well, just join us at the pub. We usually meet up to walk at 10.00am, but more details later. Here are the dates for the next couple of months:
                        Saturday June 29th
                       Wednesday July 31st
                      Saturday August 10th

Please let Rev’d Lorna know if you’ll be there on the day.

Use it or lose it


Branston Outreach Post Office

It’s a common catch-phrase. But it’s true, if we don’t use our local post office we will lose it.
The Post Office are reviewing all Outreach Services, so our village Post Office Counter, once a week in Branston Church Hall is at risk. It’s open on Thursdays, from 14.45 to 16.45pm. Services provided include Cash With-drawals and Deposits, Cheque Deposits, Travel Money Card, One 4 All Gift Cards, Marks & Spencer’s Gift Cards and other forms of e-vouchers, Parcel Returns, some Bill payments and of course normal Post Office services. So please do call in, buy some stamps, pay a bill, check out the other services available.

Branston’s Kidz Club is back in action after the Christmas holiday. They meet in Branston Church Hall on the 2nd and 4th Friday evening each month – from 6.00 to 7.15pm. Your children will be very welcome. Contact Judy on (01522) 822-620 for more information.

And talking the talk

And we’re also returning to Food4Thought (aka Bible for Beginners).
