Saturday 21st October - Caring for St. Peter's Church & Churchyard
Having the annual autumn get together - please do come along for a couple of hours if you can to help. Inside the church will be cleaning & decorating with flowers etc., to prepare the church for harvest festival. Outside there are lots of jobs in the churchyard & if you have them gardening gloves, would be useful, although not essential.
The help is to work & chat together for a morning in spring, autumn & at Christmas is very much appreciated & vital in caring for St. Peters. At this time thanks would also like to be given to those who do work around the churchyard throughout the year. The church council maintains the grass mowing according to diocesan regulation's & our conservation plan (weather permitting) which allows native & wild flowers & wildlife to thrive. However, there are always other jobs to be done & our volunteers in consultation with the church council are fantastic in helping with the ongoing battle to keep the weeds & nettles at bay.
21st and 22nd linked with St Peter's, please do let Jayne or Tessa know asap if you would like tickets as we're now arranging the catering.

Saturday 6th May, started as usual at the Church, 6.45pm – and ending…..at Stoney Cottage
Those of you who have supported us in the past knew the form, for anyone who hasn’t - we needed a good number of couples who volunteer to host a course, and you will move round the village (with your partner) eating delicious starters, main course, pudding and then coffee at different houses, all great fun, and a wonderful way to meet new Alvescotians. Food and drink are supplied by the respective hosts – all was explained.
The cost of the evening is £50 per couple, and all proceeds go to the Church.
There was room for those who didn't want to cook to get involved too.
Thank you so much – we have a wonderful village full of supporters, let’s hope we can raise another magnificent amount.
The 3rd Safari Supper result in – and what a fabulous result – at the moment we have raised a whopping £1,335 from the dinner tickets, raffle and donations – a huge total, which with Gift Aid takes it to over £1,600……
Huge thanks to those who cooked, provided Prosecco/beer/wine/cheese and donated money – all helping to make the night a success – we have a wonderful village, I think unique in its camaraderie and fun loving participants
