Urgent Help Needed for our Lincoln Food Bank

URGENT NOTICE

Food and fuel poverty are real issues for a significant section of our communities. People are having to choose whether to turn on the heating or to have a meal.

As you know the Parish collects food for the Lincoln Food Larder. Since the Covid pandemic the amount of food we have collected has reduced significantly.

I am trying to re-start our food giving in order to support the many disadvantaged families in Lincoln.

If you are able to donate food for the Lincoln Food Larder could you please bring it and leave it at the back of St Michael’s Church, Bassingham. I will then take it to the Larder. Only tins and dried food products please.

Thank you

Best wishes

John

WITHAMSIDE PARISH CRAFT WEEKEND AT ST. MARY’S, CARLTON LE MOORLAND.

Plans are now well advanced for this bank holiday weekend to celebrate the art and craft skills of local people. It will be held on SATURDAY 27th AND SUNDAY 28th AUGUST at St. Mary’s Church, Carlton Le Moorland.

There will be a limited number of stands available and we want to represent as many, different arts and crafts as possible!

Bassingham W.I. has kindly agreed to provide refreshments over the two days. There will be children’s activities and competitions. It will be a really good whole family experience!

If you have a talent that you would like to display and would like to apply for a stand in the church then contact Andrew and Ingrid Alsop (01522 78848 thealsops@chibley.co.uk ) for an application form.

We have already had a number of people approach us to express an interest – so DO NOT DELAY!

No charge will be made to people who simply want to display their art or craft. Those who want to sell items will be asked to donate 10% of their money to fund raising at St. Mary’s. There will be a voluntary collection at the door for visitors.

Put the dates in your diary. We look forward to welcoming you to this event that will demonstrate how talented local people are!

“SONGS FOR THE SOUL” AT ST. MARY’S, CARLTON LE MOORLAND.

“The Lincs. Soul Collective” gave a superb performance to a sell out audience at St. Mary’s Church on Saturday 11th June. Liz, Phil and Dave featured songs following the journey of soul, gospel and blues music. The history of this wonderful music paid tribute to performers like; Carol King, Etta James, Nina Simone and Ray Charles.

The audience was able to enjoy refreshments at the interval outside on a glorious summer’s evening. All money raised from this fantastic concert will go towards Withamside Parish Funds. We look forward to inviting these talented musicians back in the future!

Our team of volunteers, once again, made sure the evening was a success with their preparation and support. It was particularly pleasing to be able to use all our new facilities for our audience.
