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

On Saturday, 9th September, Kirstie and John Turner hosted a village coffee morning at Old Yew Tree Farmhouse in aid of church funds, which raised the very useful sum of £195. Many thanks to all those who donated items for the refreshments and the raffle and to those who supported us on the day. Also very many thanks to Kirstie and John and the rest of their family.
On the same day, Susannah Hall rode for us in the annual ‘Ride and Stride’ event in aid of the Shropshire Historic Churches Trust. She visited 21 churches again this year and her sponsorship raised £280.50 which, as usual, will be divided equally between the Trust and our fabric fund. Well done, Susannah and very many thanks.
As mentioned in the September magazine, our Harvest Festival evensong this year will be on Sunday 8th October, starting at 6.30pm. The collection will, as usual, go to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution and the service will be followed by refreshments at Church House, to which everyone will be very welcome.
