High Tea – November 24th at 2pm: Tickets are now available. Feel free to bring a friend – or a group of friends.
Everyone is welcome and a number of men have already indicated they are coming. This is a great opportunity to gather and enjoy nice food, great company, and fine china and have a good old catch-up.
At $20 a ticket we hope to be able to make this a helpful fund-raiser for the church. Tickets can be bought from either office, or Lesley Compton or Anne Stewart.
Women’s Fellowship @ Bryndwr: All are welcome to the final meeting of the year to be held in the small chapel at The Village Bryndwr, Thursday 29 November, at 7.30 pm. We will have some Christmas readings and communion followed by supper. Also this will be an opportunity to discuss 2019 so bring along your ideas! Please note change of date.
2019 Village Calendars: Martin has prepared another photographic calendar as a fundraiser for The Village. There are only 99 calendars on offer – $20 each with $10 going to The Village. They will be arriving shortly. Orders can be left on the clipboard, or with Tracey at the Papanui office.
Truffle Time: We would like to present truffles to the Burnside Primary staff as a Christmas treat. These can even be made now and frozen, as the morning tea when we will be gifting these is in December. Ring Linda Cowan and she can collect and store them. Many thanks!
Food parcel update: We are grateful for the wonderful donations of food and hygiene products for Burnside Primary families. We are planning on preparing a few extra parcels before the end of the year and especially need: breakfast cereal, jams and spreads, tea and coffee and biscuits for the occasional treat. Also, toilet paper, toothbrushes and cleaning products. Thanks again!
Grounds Roster @ Bryndwr: A new roster has been prepared and emailed to those involved, for the period December 2018 to March 2019. Please let Leone know if you have not received your email.
