Don’t forget that the Carols by Candlelight at 6.30pm on Christmas Eve gets busy very quickly so get there early!
Everyone is warmly invited to the Flowton Christmas Fair on Saturday 1 December between 10am and 12noon in church.
It includes some craft activities, coffee and refreshments, and the last chance to buy the raffle tickets from the Super Raffle! before the winners are drawn that morning. We are also hoping to have the roof tiles for the Hidden memories signing available.

Available from Diana 01473 658335, Margaret 01473 658330, Mary 01473 658522, The Elmsett Post Office and Somersham Community Shop.
Prizes include a week in an Etruscan seaside hideaway (actual photo from hideaway shown here!) plus health club day passes, champagne, vouchers for the Duke of Marlborough and more.
Winning tickets to be drawn at the Christmas Fair on 1 December.
One of our roof-repair fundraising activities is “Hidden Memories” – you can sign a roof tile in memory of a loved one, or just as a record that you lived in Flowton in 2018. These will be put on the roof (signed side down) and will of course not be found until the roof needs repairing! A record will be kept of the names. Contact Diana Fawcusif you are interested and we will later arrange a signing date.
Work needed to be carried out on the roof has to be postponed because of a bat roost, so the kitchen etc will be built first, so hopefully we will have a fully functioning church “with facilities” ready for the Flower festival and Open Gardens on June 22nd and 23rd 2019!

Wednesday 10th October is World Mental Health Day.

Many many thanks to all who came and supported the church fete again this year. We were blessed with gorgeous weather this after several rainy years and we were entertained in the sunshine with some new games this year. As usual the tea/cake/cream teas sold well.
We raised over £750 for church funds – thank you.
