Origami Doves

Just a few days now remain to make poppies and doves to decorate the church for Remembrance Sunday (100 years since WW1).

There has already been an amazing village effort: your efforts have been incredible — thank you to everyone who has contributed.

More still would be very welcome — details here

Please ensure that all completed items are placed in the drop off boxes by Tues 6th Nov or brought directly to St Mary's church, between 9.30 — 11.00am next Tuesday.

The display will remain in church for approximately 3 weeks after 11th November.
