Remembrance 2019

Remembrance 2019

We are planning a display of knitted / crochet poppies for St Mary’s Church for Remembrance Sunday 2019. We are hoping to form an arch of poppies over and cascading down either side of the south door so we will need hundreds if not thousands of poppies: red, white and purple.

Please help us with this project; we have a simple knitting pattern available if required or just do your own. You may like to do it in remembrance of a loved one or just to help with the project.

Patterns are in the church on or near the stewards desk. For more information please ask either Rev Denise, Wendy, or Ann or phone Ann 713063.

Charity of the Month:
People for You

People for You

People For You is an established and well regarded volunteer befriending and support service, aimed at the many older, isolated and vulnerable people living in the Lechlade, Fairford, Tetbury and surrounding area of the South Cotswolds.  The overall aim of the project is to reduce isolation and is entirely supported by local volunteers who offer a free, confidential service and the only one of its kind in the area.

A volunteer visitor calling regularly each week, offering friendship and a listening ear has a positive impact on a client’s state of mind, their sense of wellbeing and community belonging. Meaningful social interaction helps build resilience and the ability to cope with factors that affect mental and physical health. Many of the older people supported by the project are disabled, have mobility issues, are housebound or perhaps in the early stages of dementia.

Recruitment of volunteers takes place on a regular basis to cope with the demand for the service.

For more information the main contact is Sue Black: 07810 630167.
