News roundup from All Saints

Volunteers needed!
English Heritage awarded us a large grant towards the restoration work, and as part of this agreement we need to have the church open for a set amount of hours each year.  We therefore would like people to offer to man the church during these compulsory open times.  No prior knowledge is needed, nor is this only open to church members, all are welcome!

Please contact Ruth Eagle Tel. 322285

Cleaning Rota
We are in the process of setting up a cleaning rota, again non church goers are very welcome.  If you have a few hours to spare please contact me.  Many hands make light work!  You don’t need to work alone in the church as we could arrange for you to work with someone else.

Please contact Ruth Eagle Tel. 322285

Verger needed
A verger is needed for occasional offices (weddings, baptisms, funerals).  This involves opening up, preparing the church and locking up again afterwards.  Sometimes it would be helpful to stay for the actual service and assist by handing out hymn books and collecting them in.  A fee is payable.  Church goers and non church goers are welcome to apply.

Please contact the Churchwardens Liz Murray Tel. 323357 or Nicholas Bennett

Jubilee Weekend
The church played an integral part in Nocton’s wonderful Royal Garden Party.  Our grateful thanks go to Jilly Burr for all the effort she put into restoring the model coronation coach which was on display in the church.  It was truly spectacular and the village is fortunate to be the guardians of such a special model.  Thank you to Carol for the cups of tea!
