Thank you to everyone who supported the Courtlands Garden Party in aid of the church extension fund on Monday. You raised a stonking £807 and this, with a very generous donation also received this week, means we only have to raise another £10k before we can start to build. 🙏👷‍♂️

The 8am service at St Margaret's tomorrow morning has had to be cancelled due to the London - Brighton bike ride with 4,000 cyclists which is taking place tomorrow. We apologise for the late notice but we weren't aware of the bike ride or the problems it would for traffic trying to reach the village.

Congratulations to Derek, Gary and all the Churchyard Working Party volunteers on being nominated for a Gold Standard Award by South & South East in Bloom for their work on St Margaret's churchyard this year - it's taken a lot of hard work over the last twelve months to earn this.

Thank you to everyone who supported Saturday’s quiz night for the extension fund. We raised £1,000 which, with some recent generous donations from parishioners, takes us to just over £282k. We’re so nearly ready to start building now! The next date for your diary is a Garden Party at Courtlands Nurseries on 17th September. Please save the date.

Calling all knitters and crochet workers! St Thomas‘ neonatal care unit in London would love some more baby squares - they have an ongoing need for them in neonatal intensive care and every one that’s donated is appreciated (dropped stitches and all). So dig out those knitting needles and half used bundles of wool and get knitting!
