Advent Box preparation - Wednesday 12 October

Last year Nina put together some wonderful Advent boxes for some children in our area. The boxes included activities and arts, with a focus on the nativity. This year we would like to do the same for the families who have been at Arts4Kids - but this means we will have to do many more. So we are going to have a production day on Wednesday 12 October in the Parish Hall. Starting at midday, all are welcome to come along and help put together some boxes. Lunch will be provided.

Parish Movie Afternoon

Join us for our Parish Movie Afternoon on Sunday 6 November at 3.15pm (drinks from 2.30pm). Mrs Harris Goes to Paris is a delightful comedy-drama starring Lesley Manville and her adventures in Paris in pursuit of her couture dreams.

Tickets are $12 pp and include a drink or ice cream (payable on the day). To book, phone Christine on 422 3499.
