Harvest Supper 5 October

A reminder that Morcott’s Harvest Supper is on the evening of Friday 5 October 2018, in the Village Hall. All welcome!

The plan is to share the workload by making it a Bring & Share meal. We ask everyone to contribute EITHER  a main course, OR a pudding and bring it to the Hall at 7pm, with a view to sitting down to eat together at 7.30pm.

What do we mean by Bring & Share? If you are a couple and want to bring a shepherd’s pie, make one that serves four. If you are a family of four and want to contribute an apple crumble, make one to feed eight.

Leaflets have been distributed asking villagers to book their seats with Jane Williams (churchwarden) so that the church team can plan tables/chairs, vegetables, custard/cream etc. Please get in touch with her by end of the weekend Sunday 30 September. Call 747 157 or email ejw.email (at) gmail (dot) com

Willoughby Rd Closure

RCC has advised the Parish Council that Willoughby Road will be closed on 16 October for (probably) four days to include 19 October, to allow for gas works to be undertaken. As usual, ‘reasonable facilities will be provided to allow access to adjacent premises’ in other words, those of us who live in Willoughby Road should still be able to access our driveways, but on-road parking is probably not possible.

Diversion signs will be up for accessing the tip etc.

extra Church Service this Sunday

There is an additional Church Service this Sunday in Morcott, at 10am. It is the fifth Sunday in the month, so all the villages in our group share on service and it is Morcott’s turn. Note the earlier than usual time of 10am.

It’s a service of Holy Communion, and the Morcott congregation will be joined by people from our sister churches. The Benefice Choir will be taking part in the service, so there’ll be more music than normal. Coffee/tea and biscuits will be served afterwards. All welcome!
