From the URC
We got our fundraising year off to a great start at the end of April, with a wonderful attendance at the Spring Forecourt Sale and proceeds of almost £800 to the church and this year’s charities [Samaritans and CLICK Rukiga].
Now we are going to help kick start the Festival with a variety of stalls accompanied by a coffee morning with homemade cakes. The event on Saturday 11th June will run from 10am to 12 Noon, admission is FREE and you will be able to choose from plants, bric-brac, books, collectables including stamps, cigarette card and postcards, and anything else that comes in, but not clothes or shoes.
If you have items to donate please bring them to the church between 2pm and 6pm on Friday 10th June or ring Richard Piper on 01895 634348 for collection. This is also the number for any enquiries or offers of help.
The response was great last time in terms of both donations and sales so let’s try to do even better!
Please come along and support this vital local amenity
Find out more at the Village Hall AGM on 26th May @ 7:30 p.m.
Non-members VERY welcome – light refreshments will be served afterwards
Don’t miss our first forecourt sale of 2022, on Saturday 30th April, 10am to 12 Noon, admission FREE.
Alongside a coffee morning with homemade cakes in the Oasis, we’ll have plants, bric-a-brac, books [both “high quality” at £1-£5 and general stock at 50p paper/£1 hard], toys and games, maps, stamps and pretty much anything else except clothes.
The quality books will be indoors in any case and some other items will be in the event of bad weather, so please try to get there even if there are April showers about.
Remember that the cricket season will have been going for three weeks by then!
Proceeds will be shared between the church and our external charities for the year, which are The Samaritans and CLICKRukiga.
If you have items to donate please bring them to the church on Friday 29th April between 2pm and 6pm or ring Richard Piper on 01895 634348 for collection.
This is also the number for any enquiries or offers of help.
We hope to hear from you and/or see you!
From the URC
We are holding a coffee morning this Saturday, 19th February, from 10am to 12 Noon, admission free. As well as coffee, tea and homemade cakes there will be the opportunity to build up the mountain with the coins that no one seems to want these days and are just gathering dust!
There’s plenty going on this coming weekend at the URC! On Friday evening the church will be open from 6pm to 9pm for a festive display on the theme of LIGHT, accompanied by stalls of Christmas goods, small bric-a-brac and quality second-hand books and a bran tub for the children. There will be seasonal refreshments in the Oasis coffee shop, an update on CLICK Rukiga and a raffle with prizes including Sunday lunch for four at the Fairways Carvery and a £25 meat voucher from Ickenham Village Butchers. We will be open again on Saturday morning from 10am to 12 Noon for a Festive Coffee Morning, with the stalls still open and augmented by one of the famous Butterflies book stalls. There are no admission charges at any point so we look forward to seeing you.
This Wednesday (8th) meet our recycling officers outside Ickenham Village Hall 10am to 3pm
