The Friends - Yard Sale Thank You

The Friends of All Saints' Church would like to thank all those who participated in the recent Yard Sale and in particular to thank Swanton Morley Butchers, the Village Shop and Darby's for kindly selling the maps, the 24 people who organised yard sales at their houses and the many visitors who seem to have spent their money generously.
The Yard Sale itself raised a total of £303. In addition the PCC raised £80 from their own 'yard sale' in the church.

Bell Ringers - School Children visit the Tower

The Year 3/4M class from Swanton Morley Primary School took a trip up the bell tower today to have find out what ringing is all about as part of their RE work. Tower Captain Aaron Hall, who works with the class as a teaching assistant explained all about the history of the tower and the bells which sit in it to the assembled group. The children were then given a short ringing demonstration of rounds and call changes as well as a short blast of plain hunt on five. To round off their visit up the tower Class Teacher Nutan Mulholland and Teaching Assistant Sarah Sadler were invited to have a go...we have two potiental ringers there!
