Lost Property

Two items of lost property have recently been passed to the website Admin.

The first is a CAR KEY fob, for remote locking and with a pop-out ignition ‘key’. Found in the bus stop on the High Street.

The second is a tiny  (really tiny, possibly a child’s?) drop earring. Just one, found in the Village Hall.

Please contact Jane on 747 157 for either of these.

Church Sunday 31 July

All are welcome at South Luffenham church at 10am on Sunday 31 July, for the only church service that will be held in our group of parishes that day, because it is a ‘fifth Sunday’. The service will be led by our ‘new’ Priest-in-Charge the Very Reverend Christopher Armstrong.

Chris successfully completed his abseil down Peterborough Cathedral tower on 8 July. We’d like to thank all those who already sponsored him (the money is split between the Cathedral and our churches). There’s still time to donate if you wish!

The next church service in Morcott is 7 August.
