More details to follow, but put the date in your diaries now because we'd love to see you there!! Let's all be praying that we have great weather and a great time too!

David would like to pass on his thanks to everyone who sponsored Real Easter Eggs for the Foodshed. The final total was over 70 - a wonderful response! We are sure the families would have been delighted to have received them and we hope and pray that as the children used the Easter activity and storybooks with each egg, they and their parents will have been helped to understand the real meaning of Easter!

Over this past week there have been lots of different windows decorated for Easter. Have you found them all yet? Today is the last day of the trail, so if you've not got anything planned for the Bank Holiday today why not take some time to get out hunting!

With the Easter weekend now upon us that brings our #lovethroughlent to a close. We do hope you found it a help during the past few weeks to focus on a bit of #selfcare and #neighbourcare.
What were your favourite ideas from the suggestions?
But just because lent is now over for this year it doesn't mean that we stop loving neighbours or ourselves! Why not keep the ideas handy as a reminder over the next few months?
