Last year the Abbey had a stall at the Fayre where we publicised our events and activities during the summer. We would like to repeat and improve on what we did last year. If you could spare some time to erect and man the stall then could you please contact Bob on 07941402211.
The event is followed by Messy Abbey at 16:00 and we managed last year to encourage parents and children to attend after the Fayre.

Our next Mothers' Union meeting is May 8th for our annual walk.
This year we are planning to walk to Austrey via Warton - about 5 miles.
We will meet in the refectory at 10.15. Lunch will be at the Bird in Hand, Austrey at approximately 12.30.

For those wishing to walk one way only we will ensure enough cars are available to get everyone home!

For those who wish to join us for lunch but not walk, please let me know you are coming. The Bird in Hand does not normally serve meals on Monday, but will open for a group, so we need to have numbers.


Children's activities All ready to go.
Still time to join us before noon
