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 celebrated our Patronal Festival and was held Saturday 11th June at Tickenham Court. Fun, games, great stalls, chicken chuckin’, live music, cream teas – all the fun of the fair was much enjoyed. Watch out for the 2017 date!
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!
Don’t forget it is the first Tickenham Flower Show jumble sale. Doors open at 2pm. If you have any quality jumble, please bring it along in the morning.
All proceeds go to the Tickenham Flower Show to help fund this annual village event.
Don’t forget the Christmas Social evening on Thursday 3rd December at 7.00pm in the Village Hall. Interesting guest speakers, a raffle, Christmas Bria-a-Brac, Cash Bar and a Welcoming drink and mince pie. Enjoy a Christmas evening with friends. Patrons entry free on showing Patrons card, £1 to all other guests.
In the run up to Christmas the local Post Offices can be very crowded with long queues. Why not buy your stamps and post your parcels at Tickenham Post Office, where the parking is easy? It’s open on Mondays from 10 till 11.30 and Wednesdays from 2 till 4 pm, in the Committee Room of the Village Hall (access via the back door). On Mondays you can even have coffee and cake! Tickenham Post Office will run all through December, so please patronise it and help keep it open.
