Newspaper Collection
Apr 14 @ 9:00 am

To help ensure we do take away your papers, please consider;

  • Placing them in a prominent place so that they are visible. (Some of our helpers do not live in the village and so may not know all of our local roads).
  • Placing the papers at the roadside so that we definitely can’t miss them, even better to place them with someone else’s papers to make a bigger pile to see.
  • If the pavements are icy or you have difficulty getting the papers out please let me know (01303 812251) and I can ensure we look closely at your house or even knock on the door.
  • Please ensure the papers are out by 09:00 hrs on collection days (always the second Saturday of every month)

Please put the date in your diary and come and request your favourite hymns or introduce us to something new.


There will be a lunch break from 1.00 – 1.45 during which a soup and roll lunch will be on sale in the Oak Room for anyone – whether singing or not.
