ANNUAL VESTRY AND PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETINGS (with short PCC Meeting)
These will be held on Tuesday 4th April at 6.00 p.m. in the Village Hall, followed by a glass of wine.   All welcome.

COMMONWEALTH FLAG
We will be raising the Commonwealth Flag at St Nicholas Church at 10.00 a.m. on Monday 13th March.   The Parish will be one of more than 1,000 communities in the UK all raising the Commonwealth Flag at the same time.   The ceremony will start at 9.45 a.m. when a message from the Commonwealth Secretary will be read out and immediately after that Canon Bede Cooper will read the Commonwealth Affirmation as the flag is raised and the church bells are rung.   Following the ceremony there will be refreshments in the church.   Last year more than 30 members of the Parish and the St Nicholas community attended.  Can we improve on this number this year?

FOOD BANK
There is always a collection box in the Church porch for donations to the Food Bank in Gillingham which is regularly emptied (there are some lists inside it indicating what they are most pleased to receive) and they are always very grateful.
