Church Fund Raising

Shenlow Singers in concert

On 29th September, following a beautiful Harvest Thanksgiving service and Auction of Fresh Produce in the morning, we were entertained by some wonderful singing in the Church in the afternoon. The singers led by Sue Witeman performed some lovely pieces in their varied programme. We thank them very sincerely for coming to sing for us to help raise money for the Church Restoration Fund.

The church was looking very festive with colourful flower arrangements - thanks to the "flower" ladies who beavered away on the Friday before. Thank you to all who brought produce, gave flowers and foliage and also for the packages and tins of food which will be on their way to the Coventry Food Bank.

After the singing, refreshments were served at the Old Chapel courtesy of Jill and Colin Tucker. Thanks go to all the ladies who baked delicious scones and cakes and to Ed Fox for helping with the pig roast. Thanks go to James who kindly set up the bar which was well patronised even at 4pm in the afternoon!! Possibly because most people could walk home!!

The afternoon activities achieved the sum of 664 for the Restoration Fund. See Nicholas' report on the Harvest Service.

Pub Quiz

A good number of people turned up for the Pub Quiz at the Peacock on the 6th October. Normally these monthly quizzes support the air ambulance but on this occasion Pam and Yvonne very kindly supported the Church Restoration Fund.

As well as the proceeds from the quiz, Pam and Yvonne organised a raffle and achieved the sum in total of 339. At the end of the evening Pam presented a cheque to our Treasurer James Synge. We are very grateful to Pam and Yvonne for offering this opportunity to boost our funds, so thanks to you both.

Of course we must not forget to thank quizmaster Robin Teal who added to the entertainment of the evening.
