2018 Calendars:

Martin has again prepared these as a fundraiser for The Village on the theme of ‘Wonder’. The calendars are available for purchase today and over the coming weeks for $20 

Redwood Carols: Friday 22nd December at 6pm at Redwood Park by the tennis courts, (off Main Nth Rd at Sturrocks Rd, then Saunders Place).

There is a free sausage sizzle and activities for the kids. Dan Spragg, Stephen Hill, Darryl Tempero and Martin Stewart are playing in the band accompanying the carols. Everyone is invited to come along and join in.

Kids Club Helper:  It would be wonderful if someone could volunteer to help with Kid’s Club next year.  We have a gap in the kitchen, cutting fruit and setting out afternoon tea and being with the children as they eat, and then helping the other helpers as required.  Kids Club meet every Monday 3pm-5pm in term-time.  If you are interested please talk to Lesley Compton or Frances Coburn.

Service of remembering: at St Lukes 5.30pm Wed Dec 20 – see below
