Raughton Head Summer Plant Sale All Saints Church

Summer Tidy -up (Saturday 25th July)
We have thought about gradually getting back to routine matters in our lives. The church and church yard continues to be a significant place for many in our community.
We have missed regular worship, yet found other ways to pray and now wonder if we might catch-up with each other in a social distanced way to do some routine jobs about the church yard. The grass will have been cut and maybe paths and garden borders could do with a spruce. Some of the usual chores:
    We will have to do without refreshments. Time: 10.00 am. - 12.00 noon

    Co-op Foodbank
    Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our Foodbank in the Co-op. We have had a lot of contributions. Helen has offered to host another collection point for those who cannot go to the Co-op. Whilst the restrictions are in place she and Colin will leave a box in the porch of 12, Station Rd and empty it every night. They will keep the porch door open from 9.00 am. to 9.00 pm. so no handles need to be touched. 

    Phone Line Launched
    The Church of England has launched a phone line of daily hymns and prayers.

    Caring for each other
    Dear All,
    I do hope everyone is well and coping under the new circumstances, I have come to the end of my isolation although I’m still feeling a little groggy.
    Caring for each other
    If you are sick or have isolated and need a delivery or a chat on the phone please send me an email. Likewise, if you are someone who could offer a delivery or a phone chat please let me know and we will see if we can put people together.
    There is information for support on the Parish Council website
    God bless you all,
    Ben Phillips - 070360 99123


    Are you Self Isolating?
    Whether you are unwell or just in the relevant high risk group, do you need help getting food supplies, prescriptions, dog walking etc etc? I am co-ordinating several local volunteers, so if you need help please contact me. We plan to do a door to door leaflet drop in the villages but in the meantime if you know of anyone isolated please let them know of this service. I hope we are not needed, but we are prepared just in case! More volunteers needed in Gaitsgill and Raughton areas - please email.

    Is this email (see above) from Ben Phillips, our vicar?
    No, it’s a phishing scam (see below).
