    St John's Remembering Tree:
    This is an opportunity to place an angel on our Remembering Tree to remember the life of a loved one, or to remember someone you won’t be able to see this Christmas, or maybe to say Thank You to someone who has helped you over the last few difficult months.

    Small wooden Angels with coloured ribbons for hanging on the Remembering Tree will be available in St. John’s from Monday 14 December. The Church is open from 10.00am to 3.00pm. There will be colouring pens in the Church or you can decorate the angels at home. Angels will be hung on the Remembering Tree on Saturday 19 December. Angels cost £1.00 each

    The Remembering Tree and the Angels will be lit up in St. John’s during the Christmas period and visitors are very welcome.
    For more information please contact Jo Churchill on 01747 850432
