News from St. Andrew’s, Ashford Bowdler – May

Our annual parish meetings took place in the church on 16th April with the Rector, Rev. Lynn Money,
and 11 members of our electoral roll present, which was a better attendance than last year.
At the Annual Meeting of Parishioners, Ann Lansdell was re-elected to serve as churchwarden for
another year and a vote of thanks for her work over the past year was also passed. It is now several
years since we had two churchwardens, but we manage to keep going with help from others when
At the Annual Parochial Church Meeting which followed, Rupert and Alison Coggon, who had
been co-opted to the PCC last year, were formally elected as full members of the PCC for the next three
years. Michael Chesshire and Jeremy Lansdell, as our two Deanery Synod representatives, continue as
ex officio members, as does Ann as churchwarden. The other continuing lay members are Jean Allen,
Michelle Hodnett, Michael Shallow and Kirstie Turner, while Margaret Small (who has served
continuously on the PCC for more years than she cares to remember!) was appointed an honorary
member with the right (but no obligation) to attend future meetings and to receive notices, minutes and
other PCC papers. At the first meeting of the new PCC following the annual meetings, Jeremy Lansdell
was re-appointed as Vice-Chairman and Treasurer and Ann Lansdell was re-appointed as Secretary.
Looking ahead, our pattern of regular services changes in June to the following:
First Sunday of the month: Holy Communion (BCP) at 11.15am
Second Sunday: Evensong (BCP) at 6.30pm
Third Sunday: Matins (BCP) at 11.15am
Fourth Sunday: No service
In other words our regular Holy Communion and Matins services simply change places.
The next meeting of the new PCC will be on Monday, 21st May, at Church House at 7.30pm.

Bowls Club Mar 2018

There is the usual excitement in the Village that accompanies the start of the bowls season.
Winter training schedules are being intensified and the Tuesday morning fitness sessions, in the Village Hall, have benefited from an influx of bowlers, anxious to be in peak condition by then.
We are planning to start bowling at 2pm on Tuesday 27th March and to follow this, at approximately 3-30pm, with a brief meeting.
Regular sessions will take place at 2pm on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and as soon as conditions allow the Wednesday evening programme will commence, that is 6-7pm for Juniors and 7pm onwards for adults.
We are anxious to attract new members, please come along to any session, for a FREE, FREE, FREE trial.

Murder On The Orient Express – 10 April

What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie and a remake of the original film, “Murder on the Orient Express” tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. Kenneth Branagh directs and leads an all-star cast including Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad.
The film will start at 7.30, no prior booking is necessary and of course the Bar will be open!
A reminder – we’ve been advised by Flicks that the expected availability date for this last film is fine at the moment, but there is a very small possibility of change. We will of course keep you informed by means of notices in and around the Village Hall should there be any changes in the schedule.
We look forward to seeing you in April!
