KEY inter-generational project

Wednesday 28th June, between 3.30–5.30 pm at M:Hub

Another opportunity to come and take part!

We had a lovely afternoon a couple of weeks ago, talking with some of the young people about our memories of the past – especially those of us who could remember Coronation Day in 1953! And some put their thoughts into words or pictures; others just listened and enjoyed flicking through old magazines of the day and recalling their favourite film star.

The young people would really appreciate meeting more of our KEY supporters – so if you have time, pop into M:Hub this Wednesday afternoon.

Praise on the Lake 

Sunday 2nd July.

Sorry ~ this event is now fully booked.

Heversham St Peter’s CE Primary School

We are marking the school’s closure in a way that celebrates its long history and valuable contribution to the life of the community.

Sunday 16th July, 9.30 am at St Peter’s Church

A Special Celebration Service. Everyone is welcome ~ do come along.

Monday 17th July, 1.30–3.15 pm, and 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm, at the School.

We invite everyone to come into school, look around, share memories and renew acquaintances.

There will be

  • presentations by the children
  • displays and
  • plenty of refreshments.

We hope that as many people as possible will drop in and share this very special occasion.

Food bank

We urgently need a storage space for Milnthorpe Area Foodbank.

Preferably in Milnthorpe or Heversham.
There are about 12–15 boxes of different types of food to store.
A small room where we could put some shelves and have
access for packing food deliveries would be ideal. 
It needs to be dry and have easy access.
We may lose our current storage space very soon.
Suggestions would be very welcome.
Please contact Margaret Barrow or Christine Honour.

Changes to Services at St Peter’s and St Thomas’s.

  • On Sunday 30th July, the 8.00 am Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion Service is at Milnthorpe and not at Heversham, so that there is a Communion Service in each church on that day.
  • On Sunday 6th August, the Joint Service at Heversham (because of the Art Exhibition at Milnthorpe) will start at 10:30 am.
    All Joint and United Services from this date will start at 10:30 am.
  • On Sunday 10th September, the 8.00 am Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion Service is at Milnthorpe and not at Heversham, so that there is a Communion Service in each church on that day. The other BCP Services in September are as usual.

Milnthorpe Art Exhibition 2017

Thursday 3rd to Sunday 6th August at St Thomas's Church

It’s that time of year again!

I have put the rota for helping with catering on the notice board at St Thomas’s.
If you can help out any time for an hour or more to serve tea or cakes, or wash up,
I would be very, very grateful ~ put your name and phone number on the rota.

If you can make cake(s) or biscuits that would also be appreciated

It isn’t only women’s work, men are welcome to come and join us as well!

It isn’t terribly hard work and you can have a good gossip and a bit of a laugh.
So, come on folks ~ don’t hold back! 
In the words of Paul Hollywood, 'Get baking,' and then come and join us
to serve the great British public!

If you need any more information, contact Val Robson.
