Happy hedgehogs

Thank you, David and Graham, for the hedgehog boxes. Always ready for a bit of one-upship, we are now a two-hedgehog-box family!


The funeral of Pat Ward will take place on Tuesday 11 August at 13:15 at All Saints. Due to the current restrictions only 30 people are allowed to attend in church, these people will have been contacted. However, I know that many more of you would have liked to attend. It would be a wonderful mark of the respect in which Pat was held if those not able to attend the funeral could stand, appropriately social distanced, along the church wall on Midland Road as Pat arrives at All Saints for the final time. If you intend to do this could you be in place by 1pm on Tuesday.
