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.
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.

Nicholas community attended. Can we
