Tim and Jane Hough have become Grandparents for the first time after the birth of Rafferty Kit Hunter on April 1st. Rafferty was born three weeks early but weighed in at 6 pounds and all are doing well.
We are delighted to announce the birth of Sophie Grace a first child to Hannah and Jonnie.
St Bart’s did a bucket collection during the Plant Sale and has made up the collection to £100 and sent it to Christian Aid. This year the money is being used to support refugees, nicely complimenting our affiliation to the National ‘For Refugees’ campaign.
Thank you to all who gave.
Our first Village Good News Story from Jean Jones is:-
“I will start the good news. Rob has just announced “it’s been a nice day!”
Last week we found our cat, Bob’s brother was found after being missing for 5 years!
And finally for today, snowdrops are out in Church Minshull!” Jean Jones
After some discussions at our Cafe Church Service on 12th February 2017, it was decided that individually and collectively all members would have a “Good News” element to Social Media postings and articles for publications. Here, Good News Stories would be promoted to try to counteract all the Bad News and negativity we are finding and reading about. This would make a positive statement and would be a good Action point to take forward.
Please send your Good News Stories with an image/photo if applicable to either :-

the Village Arena Website =
These stories will be posted on our Websites, Social Media and possibly in the Church magazine “Insight”.
