Tuesday Morning Coffee and Cake

Tuesday morning’s Coffee and Cake sessions are in the Thomas Field Hall – Tuesdays from 10:30am to 12:00 noon. Any enquiries to Hilary Catchpole at h.catchpole@btinternet.com .

Christian Aid Week

14th – 20th May is Christian Aid Week. Your gifts in 2023 will help farmers in countries such as Malawi plant better seeds, secure a fairer price for their crops and build happier futures for their children. Last year we raised over £950 and we are hoping to exceed this figure in 2023. We will be raising funds through our Strawberry Cream Tea on Saturday 20th May from 3pm-5pm in the Thomas Field Hall, collections in the church on 14th and 21st May and, for those who wish to donate online, through Little Gaddesden’s e-envelope:https://envelope.christianaid.org.uk/littlegaddesdenchurch.

Open Garden for Charity
