Our Jumble Sale in Coleford is on Saturday 13th October at the RBL, 11.00 - 1.00. Please bring any (good) jumble to the hall at 9.00 that morning or if you need it collected please ring me on 01373 812705.
Change of Date: Please cancel the All Souls' Memorial Service which was to have taken place on 4th November. Instead, we shall have a Coping with Christmas service on Monday 3rd December at 6.00 in Holy Trinity. Christmas can be an incredibly difficult time when someone has died, or indeed if you have had a split in the family, or if someone has moved far away. I hope this service will help.
If you have any queries or comments, please email me.
