Saturday 10th November 3.00
St James Church, Birdham
Thanks you so much for everyone’s generous contributions of poppies, time and materials to help decorate St James Church in readiness for our Poppies on Parade Concert. If you know anyone who has knitted poppies for this and does not receive this newsletter please thank them on our behalf as they have been really appreciated. We managed to sew on over 1000 poppies on Saturday last week. For those still knitting, your poppies will be well received.
The preparation has begun and we will begin to decorate the Church on the evenings of the 1st and 2nd November from 5.30-7.15 so if you are able to give up some of your time to help (even if only to keep our energies up with a cup of tea or just to watch proceedings) you will be welcome to join us – there will be plenty to do!
We will complete the decorating on Saturday 3rd November between 9-11am so there are plenty of opportunities still to help.
The tickets have now all gone for the event but if you would like to go on a waiting list, please catch one of us church or call me on 07816 938459
Clare, Susan & Ann xx
Message from Clare Benfield:-
I am truly overwhelmed by the amount of people who have become involved. Throughout this project I have made new friendships with many people I would not have normally had the privilege of meeting and have also discovered how talented everyone is. This has shown the true value of a community event such as this.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart x
