Picnic on the Green
We are having a picnic on the Green at Shipbourne, from 12 noon to 3.00pm on Sunday 8 August 2021. Come and re-meet your neighbours and join the village in marking an end of the lockdown restrictions.
- Prayers by the Rector
- Bring your own picnic, drinks and rugs
- Fun and games for all ages
The event is subject to the weather and depends on whether any new Covid restrictions are introduced after 19 July.
The picnic will be held by kind permission of the Fairlawne Estate
A time for coffee hospitality and mutual support…..and perhaps even singing, music making, discussion….for Mums, Dads and carers and pre-school children. We will meet normally each month in Plaxtol Church on the fourth Thursday of each month at 9.30am. Note that because of the Coronavirus pandemic, meetings of the Mums Ahoy! group have been suspended from March 2020 until further notice.
The Rector writes: “We still want to offer hospitality to any who might appreciate the chance to have a nice cup of coffee made for them……..We are not offering coffee for a chance to ram the Bible down your throat! We’re looking to serve this section of our community as a gentle expression of our faith and God’s love for all.”
