EACH: our chosen charity for July and August

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions.  They also support the whole family.  The support and care may be given in one of the three hospices or delivered in the home. Volunteers are also available to help with the domestic chores – washing, ironing etc.

The hospices are happy, fun places allowing families to make the most of their precious time together while receiving care and comfort.

EACH has to generate most of its own income, so fundraising is vital. There will be a display in Church for the two months; please look at the literature and donate if you feel able.

Thank you


Fundraising for Flycatchers

Sunday 27 May, 2.30, Brook House, Easton

Easton, Barham and Stow Longa have produced seven broods of spotted flycatchers in the past two years, but numbers are declining nationally. The British Trust for Ornithology are researching their migration to help future conservation action and have found that these Cambridgeshire birds overwinter in Angola – making a 14000 km journey.
Come to Brook House, Easton for a talk from the BTO in the church, followed by a strawberry tea in the garden. If the birds have taken up their usual nesting site by then, they should be visible from the lawn!

Tickets £7.50 (children free) from Brian and Beth Davis

Mossy Church Rogation Sunday walk, 6th May

This is a short walk around Kimbolton, stopping at intervals for hymns and prayers, when we ask for God’s blessings for a plentiful harvest and for those who work to produce our food.  We meet at the lychgate at St Andrew’s, Kimbolton, to leave at 10.45.

Everyone is welcome, especially children, though it can be a bit muddy if the weather has been wet so please wear suitable footwear!
