Now we are seven!

As from today, Kimbolton, Tilbrook, Covington and Stow Longa welcome Spaldwick, Easton and Barham and Woolley into the new united benefice that will probably take the title of “South Leightonstone.”

The official licensing of Revd Stephen Bowring as Priest-in-charge of the new arrangement will take place in Spaldwick Church at 4.00 pm on Sunday 16th Feb 2014. All welcome!

Fayre enough….!

“Animals made from vegetables” by the children

Kimbolton Village Fayre in and around St Andrews Church on July 16th was a HUGE success. The glorious weather was in stark contrast to last year, when the annual event was all but washed away. This year visitors were basking in the sunshine on one of the hottest days of the year as they perused the stalls in the churchyard or took refuge in the tea tent. Indoors the climate was a little cooler, but the competition was hot in the various categories for a variety of creative arts. There were several classes in the photography competition, and paintings from adults and children of all ages. The displays of flowers and fruit and vegetables were much admired, and a picture produced by the ‘9.37’ toddler group was “highly commended” by the judges. The grand total raised on the day for church funds was a magnificent ¬£1,100+ – the highest total ever. Well done to all involved, and a big thank you to the organising team and their helpers.
