We are almost at the launch of the 900th year celebrations for Lambourne Church. Next month we will include a diary of most of the events for the year and we hope you will want to join in the celebrations.
In the meantime may we invite you to the Launch service on Advent Sunday December 1st (the start of the church’s year) at 11.15am. Helping us launch the year will be the Archdeacon of Harlow.
At the service we hope to install our time line panels setting out some of the events that have happened during the 900 years.
We will also set up our tree to hang leaves representing 900 acts of kindness rendered in 2020. Leaves will be available at the school, church, hall and surgery. Any time you see or benefit from an act of kindness just record it on a leaf. Once a month they will be hung on the tree.
Shortly there will be available a book compiled by Alan Barr on the history of the parish. Watch this space.
Our walk of wellies for the flower festival depends on people collecting, decorating, and planting wellies. Please let us know if you can donate or prepare wellies.
We will have a stall at Abridge Christmas market on November 23rd when you can buy our 2020 clothing, bags, mugs, and we hope tea towels and calendars and also the up to date information about the year.
Our Celebration of Marriage for those who have been married in the Parish takes place on Sunday February 16th at 11.15am followed by a reception at the Village Hall. Please let all those who fall into this category know. We have letters of invitation if you need them. Most importantly, we need to know who is coming. Of course please include widows or widowers and bring photos and memories.
Much more could be written but please ask if you want to know more.
The next Tea at the Vicarage is on Tuesday 3rd December at 2.00pm. All are welcome to join us. For those who are not sure where the Vicarage is the address is 1 The Poplars, RM4 1BB
The last Clean- up Day of the year is on Saturday November 9th meeting at the Village Hall at 2.00pm. Support has dwindled over the last few months so please can we make a big effort to clean up ready for Christmas.
