Community Bread Basket
We are open again! Join us between 9.30am and 11.00am for a cafe style breakfast on Saturday 24 June in Plaxtol Parish Church. Our aim is to create a community hub where everyone is welcome to share in our monthly breakfast. Our hope is to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere where neighbours and friends can get together. There is a book table and a children’s colouring table.
There will be a collection for the Chatham Foodbank. Boxes are placed in both our churches, normally over the fourth weekend of each month, for donations of food and toiletries, to coincide with our Community Bread Basket event.
10 June – Community Bread Basket will come to Shipbourne!
Join us from 9.30 to 11.00am in the Church for a cafe style breakfast. Everyone is welcome.
Open Garden for the Restoration Appeal
Pat and Tony Daniels invite members of St Giles congregation and choir to their garden on 24 June or 15 July . Drinks and canapés will be served and donations to the Appeal will be welcomed. The newly created garden will be open from 2.00 to 4.00pm on both dates. If you would like to come on either date, please sign the sheet at the back of the church, as there is a maximum of 20 people for each date. Contact: [email protected]
St Giles Fair
Our traditional Fair will take place on August Bank Holiday, Monday 28 August. Join us for an afternoon of fun on the Green at Shipbourne. Teas will be served in the Village Hall. Further details will follow.
Churchyard working party
Our churchyard is a haven of peace but it does need work to keep it looking good. We meet twice a year to cut back grass, weeds, shrubs and hedges. If you would like to help, do come to the churchyard when we have our next session in the autumn, for a morning of clearing vegetation. Bring your own tools – secateurs, shears, strimmers etc – and protective clothing. With luck it will be reasonable weather.
Coffee, tea and soft drinks and a cake or two will be available, to keep our spirits up.
