Dear Friends

 

Our next Breakfast is on Saturday June 3rd at Folke Golf Club, 8 for 8.30am.

 

We shall be having another 'Hot Potato' session when 'Three Wise Men' from among our number will be attempting to answer some of those tricky moral and/or ethical dilemmas that face us in 21st century Britain.

 

If you have a question or topic that you would like aired please send it to me, Keith, by Tuesday of next week, May 31st., so that I can forward it in advance to the panel members.

 

It should prove an interesting morning.

Arrangements for travel to

John Summers' ordination

John Summers will be ordained Priest in Salisbury Cathedral on
 
Saturday 1st July at 4:30 pm
 
 
It is traditional for such events as these for as many parishioners as possible to travel to the service to support John, his wife Nicole and the family.
 
To facilitate our attendance the Benefice has hired a 53 seater coach to take us.  This will have the advantage of allowing us to travel as a group and therefore to hopefully to sit together in the Cathedral itself.  It will also take away the worry of parking at the Cathedral which can be tricky.
 
The Coach has been booked to pick up passengers at three points in the benefice and at the following times:
 
Yetminster at                     2.00pm:
Thornford at                      2:15pm
Bishops Caundle at            2:35pm
 
We will depart the Cathedral at 7:30pm to come home.
 
The cost per person for the trip will be £6.00 per person payable in advance.  If you would like to join us then please book through either
 
the Reverend Tony Gilbert              01935 873044
or the Reverend Richard Kirlew       01963 23570
or Mr Keith Budgell                        01963 23428
 
The seats will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
