This week members of our Positive Steps Over 50s group were on All-FM radio to talk about their photography project. Have a listen here.
Yesterday's Pancake Party was a big success. Lots of people, lots (around 200!!) pancakes, and a lot of hard work. Big thanks to Lee, Alison, Gordon, Mo, Jas, Kay and others for sterling cooking, serving and cleaning up. A great curtain-raiser to Ash Wednesday and Lent as we move toward Easter.
Photos from Sunday’s bake sale for Fairtrade Fortnight which raised £44.42. Also featuring the Ten Commandments on chocolate cake!
Shrove Tuesday, the day before the beginning of Lent (the run-up to Easter), is also known as Pancake Tuesday. So... we're having another Pancake Party. Eat pancakes of various sorts with numerous toppings (think of the combo possibilities!), play games, and make sure to ask someone where the pancake and shrove bit fits into Lent!
Shrove Tuesday, February 25, 3:30-6:30pm. Everyone welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Download a poster here.

Simon and Jess welcomed Medlock Primary School Reception classes into church this afternoon to celebrate the wedding of Priscilla Polar Bear and Thomas Teddy Bear as part of their topic work on celebrations.
The children learned about special wedding clothes and different parts of the wedding service. They even helped the bears say some very special wedding vows:
"I'll love you when there's lots of honey
I'll love you when your jokes aren't funny
I'll love you when you're feeling well
I'll love you when you really smell
I'll love you just like God loves me
Because that's the way it's meant to be."
After our mini service, all the children had the chance to wish Priscilla and Thomas well in their new life together by throwing confetti.
Women's Footprints & Live Well Make Art invite you to join us for a day of yoga, dance, ceramics, free food and a look back at our year long arts and health project.

In preparation for our annual Winter Night Shelter which will be every Monday night until the end of January, we have just spent an evening having a cook and freeze session so that we can provide hot evening meals for our guests. Various dishes were prepared and cooked by Kaye, Alison and Mo, while Gordon supervised a larger group of volunteers who peeled, chopped and sliced. Special mention for Doreen our expert and fastest peeler!
