We were pleased to welcome the Right Rev. John Hayden, retired Bishop of Kilimanjaro, to our Harvest Thanksgiving today. He spoke of God's blessings to us all and showed slides of some of the people he had worked with in Tanzania.

Our church was beautifully decorated with flowers and displays of food that were collected for St Paul's Pantry in Crewe, a local foodbank.

After the service, also taken by the Rev Anne, there was a lunch of soup, sandwiches and cream scones. Our thanks go to all who helped in so many different ways.

A very big THANK YOU to all members of our Community for your generous gifts of dried and tinned foods. These will be taken to St Paul's Pantry in Crewe Monday morning

Cliff Richard and his mates took a London double-decker bus on their 'Summer Holiday' and Dr Beeching decided we didn't need nearly 2000 railways stations. In the United States, its 35th President, J F Kennedy was assassinated...
