Rain, what rain?

I don’t know how they did it, but the downpour didn’t seem to affect the Scouts Bonfire Night celebrations on Saturday 2nd November. The rain had no effect on the fire or the fireworks that were enjoyed by the hundreds of people who went along. A stunning explosion of patterns and colours lit the sky in a way that could never be achieved in the back garden. The fifteen minute display was full of surprises like the “Catherine wheels” that spun high into the sky and the multi coloured “star bursts”. No one in the village could fail to have seen the finale: the explosions must have rocked the foundations and lit the night sky.

All Souls Service

There was standing room only at an all Souls Service held in All Saints Church on Sunday 3rd November. Those who have been grieving for someone they love, who has died in the last two years, were invited to join anyone else who was interested, in a beautiful Service of thanksgiving for the lives of loved ones.

Witches, vampires, mummies (of all types) and monsters were out and about the village on Halloween and especially so at the Guides meeting during Halloween week. Rainbows, Brownies and Guides got together for an evening of ghoulish fun, monstrous food and spooky darkness. All enjoyed lots of games, dancing and competitions for the best food and clothing.
