All Saints Church Lent Sleep-Over
Have you ever considered Champing? This recent initiative by The Churches Conservation Trust offers the opportunity to camp overnight in an ancient church for as little as £19 per night but we would welcome you to join us for a taster session in All Saints, Tarrant Monkton for the first night of Lent, Ash Wednesday, on March 1st. There are no facilities and you would need to bring your own bedding, torch and anything else you might need during the night but you will have the unique experience of spending time in a place which has been the heart of the village community since the 13th century. There will be no fixed charge but we would ask you to seek sponsorship for what you are doing. You can either set up your own JustGiving page under the church page – http://www.justgiving.com/allsaints-tarrantmonkton or get your friends to sponsor you and collect directly from them. All proceeds will go to the church maintenance fund because ancient buildings are in need of constant repair. Doing without home comforts for one night is surely easier than giving up chocolate or wine for 40!
For further details or to let us know if you would like to join us contact Annie Colligan on 830330.

At a Christmas event at the Langton Arms, over £1,800 was raised for a defibrillator. This included a very generous £1,000 donation from a local couple who had suffered a family loss due to heart failure. Barbara Cossins stated that the monies raised easily paid for a defibrilltor and left plenty for relevant training for locals on how to use it. Although, the latest defibrillators are very easy to use, giving clear instructions to users.
Please say a huge thank you to all villagers who bought the Christmas cakes I made for Naomi House. The last one has just been delivered and they have raised a whopping £250!
Thanks very much and a happy Christmas to you all.
SUNDAY 18th DECEMBER AT 6.00 p.m.
