Easter Egg Hunt

Thank you to everyone who donated chocolate eggs for the hunt toady – you’re so very kind!

Undercroft Sale - Despite dismal weather we had a successful day at the Undercroft selling bric-a-brac, Tina's wonderful hand sewn items, tombola, and cakes, which raised £406.40 for parish church funds.  Thanks so much to those who helped man the stalls and those who contributed items for sale.  All greatly appreciated.  


Now for the next fund raiser, the Summer Fayre, when help from everyone will be needed please.  Please put aside Saturday 22nd June to assist in our community event by helping at stalls, sorting out various items for our white elephant stall, plants and shrubs, good quality paperback books, toys and games, baking cakes and buns for sale and for the refreshments stall, and chutneys and jams.  We also need help erecting the marquees.  Many thanks – Chris & Jerry

Christian Aid Week - Sun 12th May until Sat 18th. Val and I will be organising the usual door-to-door collections and will be in contact to cajole/persuade you to keep doing or to commence a street round near you. We will also need the usual team of counters for the following Monday. Whilst door step collections can seem more scary that rattling a can, please note that as a result St Mary’s collections made more than any other church and amounted to a third of the overall take for the district. So be proud of your efforts particularly with cyclone Idai on mind. If you feel you can help please phone us on 01304 363272. Many thanks Jerry.

There will be a Christian Aid service at St Andrews church, Deal at 6pm on Sunday 12th May.  David Muir (Christian Aid South EastRegional Co-ordinator will be speaking at the service.
