Following a successful ‘defibrillator coffee morning’, Jane and Sue raised £ 352 from your kind donations.  Thank you for your support both in person and financially.  The cards raised £69, Connie’s Christmas stall £30.25 and tea/coffee and cakes £252.75. This puts the running total at £1350 and we will need about £2500, so well on the way.  If you weren’t able to attend, but would still like to donate to such a worthy cause, either give directly to Jane 401225 or Sue 400925 or you could leave donations with Mandy.

 DURING THE WHOLE OF NOVEMBER there will be a display in the Church to recognise/commemorate the end of the First World War and to recognise specifically ‘Fitzhead fallen’.  A number of us have been busy for months making a poppy display and it would be wonderful if ALL of you could make the effort to go to and into the Church to see our work.  We are very lucky to be able to have our Church open every day, so please, please try to go and look/read - especially commemorating our 6 Fitzhead fallen (2nd Lieut Shapland, Driv Criddle, Pte Cross, Pte Pole, Pte Thresher and Pte Maunder)

Wreath Making Session - Thursday 6th December, 7.30pm start.

‘The Fitzhead Singers’ meet once a week on Monday evenings between 7.30 and 9.00pm in the Tithe Barn and everyone is welcome to join us.  We are a mix of men and women and most of us could not read music when we started, or indeed done any singing for years.  We sing a variety of music, chosen by our music guru, Colin. It doesn’t matter whether or not you have been in music groups before: we are a friendly, supportive group and we do this for fun. But, with Colin’s patient guidance, we work hard to improve both our singing and our musical understanding.  Look out in the village newsletter for dates of practice, or contact Mandy Bool for more information.
