Safari Supper - for the uninitiated!
This is a charity event, started many years ago, to raise money for the church.
The basic idea is that people meet at tables of 8 for starters, move to another house for the main course, and again for sweet .Each time, travelling in pairs, you will meet a different set of people, until we all come together at the end for coffee. Most people will need to cook a course for it to work (25% starters, 25% mains,25% sweet), and then about 25% can come purely as guests. Drinks are provided by your host. The event is open to residents of Westwood, Avoncliff and Iford. The cost is £10 per couple, if you cook, and £50 as guests.
It is a great opportunity to eat good food, drink too much, stagger around the village and meet new people. If you come without a partner, I will pair you up as appropriately as possible for the evening.
Clearly this takes a good bit of organization, so you do have to sign up well in advance. Watch Update for details.
This year it will be on Saturday 2nd June. Jane Mitchell email@example.com 867322

Calling Young Musicians
Could you play a simple Carol - would you be interested in joining us for a Carol Service at 6.00pm on Sunday December 17th?
Last year we had three young musicians play along during the Carol Service and it was a wonderful addition to the service. If you could play a simple Carol then we would love to hear from you - the more the merrier.
If you would like a go - and pianist would be welcome on the organ - please contact Annie (07834 636 874) and we can see what we can do to raise the church roof?
