ST JOHN’S CHURCH – A lantern workshop will be held in Church House on November 4th, 6 to 8 p.m. Lanterns will be paraded to the bonfire on the Mount Lane field on November 5th prior to lighting the fire.

The Christmas fair is Saturday, November 19th. Items are urgently needed for the tombola, bottle tombola and toy stall and help is needed to man stalls. Please contact the churchwardens.

Hymn books are available to dedicate to a loved one or to commemorate a special date at a cost of £10 each. Contact Fr Keith or churchwardens.

FRIENDLY HOUR – Members met for lunch and later discussed possible dates and venues for a lunch out together before Christmas.

After some debate and difficulty in finding a date when everyone could be there, it was decided to change to a date in the spring of 2012 when there would be less chance of bad weather and ease of finding an acceptable date and venue.

The trip to Oswaldtwistle Mills will go ahead as planned on November 8th. For details contact Alice.

A musical afternoon is planned for November 22nd and members are asked to bring their favourite disc or tape to the meeting next Tuesday so that the programme can be arranged by Anne.
