The Annual Parochial Church Meeting was held on 18th April 2016. Sadly we said farewell to Clare Fraley who was standing down from office as churchwarden after four years exemplary service. Mike Goodwin continues as churchwarden for another year. Following on from items raised at the APCM, the PCC will be giving special thought to worship, stewardship and giving, and bell ringing and how these might be addressed in the future.
Tickenham Church SUMMER FAYRE to celebrate our Patronal Festival will be held on the afternoon of Saturday 11th June at Tickenham Court. Come along for fun, games, stalls, music, cream teas – all the fun of the fair!! And if you can offer help with manning a stall, or anything at all, you will be welcomed with open arms!
Our usually calm and peaceful church must have been wondering what was happening on Friday 22nd April when the HARRY BROWNS arrived! They certainly livened things up with their sea shanties and jovial banter. One minute they were larking about with idle chat, the next they were straight into another roof-raiser – and wow! did they raise the roof! We all did our best to sing along once we had caught the words – it was thoroughly entertaining and very good fun. Huge thanks to them for offering this concert with no fee in order to help with the West Window Appeal. Thank goodness the roof ultimately remained in tact!
Tickenham celebrated the Queen’s 90th Birthday with a BBQ and beacon lighting at Barn Farm, thanks to the generous hospitality of the Triggols. About 100 people came along: we enjoyed a BBQ and lit one of the official beacons. It was a huge success – the Church doing something for the community, in the community, with the community.
