A thank you from Jane to the many participants and helpers, including those who brought contributions to the door, donated raffle prizes and those who generously contributed in other ways last Saturday. It was a successful event making more than £500. Thank you.
Remembrance Sunday - Act of Remembrance
Just a reminder that our Act of Remembrance takes place at the War Memorial on Sunday at 12 noon.
This year we are able once again to accompany the laying of the wreaths with our usual short service and Act of Remembrance.
Just a reminder about Jane's Christmas Bazaar this Saturday for St Giles Church. Hope you can come.
Free entry, coffee and cake, 10am - 12.30 and 2 - 4 pm, or give Jane a ring for some raffle tickets (241367).
On Saturday 6th November there will be a special All Soul’s service in St Giles’ Church at 3pm to commemorate lost loved ones. We will remember and give thanks to God for those whom we love but see no longer. There will be opportunity (for those who wish) to light a candle and write a Remembrance Card in memory of departed family members and friends. These will then be placed on our Remembrance tree in church.
For those who are unable to come, we are happy to include other names of people you would like to remember. Please give these names to Pat Cook (Warden) ahead of the service. Her contact details are: 01367 241632 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

I want to personally thank the villagers who were able to come along to the Vicarage BBQ last Saturday to meet me informally. After lockdown it was a real joy to meet so many people. I am sure that I shall enjoy my time here as vicar in this beautiful part of Oxfordshire. I have three other village churches to look after (Buscot, Eaton Hastings and Coleshill) on a half-time basis, therefore my normal working days are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays, but I am a villager 24/7.
If you want to contact me to arrange any special services (baptisms, weddings etc) or need a chat over coffee, then please do get in touch.
Tel: 01367 240875
Saturday 4th September, 9.30 am
At last we are able to have our usual joint effort to do the annual 'major clean' for St Giles. So I hope you are able to come - this Saturday at 9.30 - and do your favourite bit(!) and then come back to Hollycroft for coffee and cake afterwards.

Saturday, 25th September – Barbecue at the Vicarage 5pm
This is for all villagers to come and join Maureen for a sociable evening.
It would be useful to have an idea of numbers for catering purposes for this free event, so perhaps you could let me know if you intend to come (email@example.com or 01367 241632).
I shall send out a reminder nearer the time, but please put it in your diaries and come and join in.
