Invitation from Penny Avann

Dear Everyone
Please excuse the corporate invitation – that does not in any way lessen the important role you have in the life of All Souls.  There are one or two things coming up in a busy term which we would like to invite you to:
  • 13th October – Vernon is doing a ‘Songs from the shows’ charity evening in the village hall. It would be great to support that and have a fun time as well
  • 26th October – Games and Nibbles Evening – All Souls from 7.30pm (come and try your hand at games of skill and the not so skilful but fun)
  • 28th October – 3.00pm Memorial and Thanksgiving Service (St Mary’s)
  • 4th November – Festival Service @ All Souls followed by lunch – it would be helpful if you  could let me know by the 25th October if you are coming to lunch please
  • 11th November – Remembrance Service @ 10.30am (with a special feature designed by Peter Dawson)
  • 7th December – Quiz Night in the Village Hall (tickets available soon)
  • 16th December – 6.30pm Carols by Candlelight @ All Souls
We look forward to seeing at some, if not all of these events.
With best wishes,
