Presentation to Rachael Harris after 50 years of playing the Church Organ

RACHAEL HARRIS's RETIREMENT
At the Harvest Festival on Sunday 8th October, Rachel Harris retired, having played our Sweetland organ for over 50 years.  At the Harvest Lunch which followed in the Village Hall, she was presented with a garden seat and matching table together with other gifts, as a mark of everyone's gratitude for her dedication and commitment.  She was very appreciative and warmly thanked the congregation for the generosity of these gifts.

BELL RINGERS
There is a short report from our bell ringing team on the 'Bell Ringers' page on this site.

 

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.

The marvellous range of dry goods, which were given by the congregation and set out on the south altar at our recent Harvest Fesitival were subsequently taken to the Gillingham Foodbank.  They always weigh these donations and this time, it came to 37.7 kgs. They are always appreciative of these gifts and were so again on this occasion.  The need for this support is becoming all the more relevant at this season as the weeks go by, as is shown by reports on the news channels
