Admiral Nurse fundraiser, churchwardens needed and tea time at St Giles and St Nicholas

ALL SAINTS ROAD: All Saints Church Hall is hosting a fundraiser for the Admiral Nurse Campaign on Saturday, January 30. Alison Black’s Palm Court-style Chudleigh cream tea will be accompanied by music and open from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. Tickets (£3.50) are available from Paragon Books and the Mustard Seed Cafe.

SIDBURY AND SIDFORD: A treasurer and two churchwardens are needed for the Parochial Church Council of Sidbury with Sidford.

The Reverend Susie Williams thanked the ‘marvellous’ incumbents who are not standing for re-election.

“The treasurer and both churchwardens have been incredibly helpful to me and have executed their duties in a more than exemplary fashion. I would like to thank them, not only for their diligence, but also for their friendship,” she said. Contact Mrs Williams on 01395 516036.

PARISH CHURCH: Sidmouth Parish Church will be hosting the next in its series of ‘teatime@theparish’ on the afternoon of Sunday, January 31.

It will start with half-an-hour of storytelling and songs telling how God keeps his promises, how this was recognised by people who met Jesus, and how people might recognise them today in their lives and in the lives of friends and families. After the blessing, when children can bring their cuddly toys, all can enjoy tea, kindly provided by parish church members. Teatime@theparish is open to all families and will start at 4pm in the church of St Giles and St Nicholas.

Only the south door will be open so as to keep the inside of the church nice and warm.
