June 2020 news from Saxtead

News from Saxtead June 2020

At All Saints, Saxtead, the glorious Mount Fuji cherry tree has shed its blossom which now forms a pink silk carpet up to the locked medieval door of the silent church. It has not been possible for the PCC to meet due to the isolation and distancing guidelines, and Sarah Rimmer has sadly notified us that our annual Church Fete has had to be cancelled. She is hoping that something can be arranged, if allowed, in the autumn.
The Loo Committee and Bill Roberts were unable to meet in the garden at Trust Farm due to distancing numbers, however the budget has been accepted and the architect will be asked to go ahead with the preparation of tender documents to be sent to a number of contractors.
The Saxtead PCC sewing group have sent more than 2 dozen masks, 5 sets of scrubs and 10 laundry bags to Foxearth so far. Sandra, the Housekeeper at Foxearth, rang to say how grateful they are for them and please could they have more masks and scrubs. So many village houses were swathed in bunting for VE Day. Everyone in the village over 70 will have been very much aware of VE Day all their lives as we were surrounded by people who had fought in the war. Very few families had no member who had died in action, paying the price for our freedom. Christina

May 2020 News from Saxtead

20 April 2020

News from Saxtead We have tremendous help in the village for the vulnerable isolated households, many kind people running errands for their neighbours, and in particular Sarah and Bill Rimmer’s son who brings wonderfully fresh fruit and veg to Saxtead weekly from a wholesaler near Ipswich. Our retired postman Andrew Walne fetches prescriptions from the Framlingham surgery weekly, and our post lady Sally Anna delivered a box of children’s cards as an Easter present from All Saints Church to 9 village households with small children and said they were thrilled with them!

News from Saxtead 
First of all, a reminder that on 2nd February, (Candlemas), there is a joint Christingle service at St Michaels at 11.00 am, so no service at Saxtead that day. For Communion, there is the 8am service at St Michael’s; see the schedule of services on reverse. Saxtead PCC has decided to start the exploration about getting a toilet and water into Church and to get our architect to help us begin the work. A small group has been formed to work with the Architect to consider the possibilities for water and for waste and the possible designs. They will need to work at the costings and consider phasing the work. The PCC also considered the possibilities for the Cremation plot in the Churchyard and is taking some advice on the possibilities of what is possible and what would be allowed. Alpha Course We got off to a good start with plates of steaming Red Poll cottage pie for our fifteen guests who came from as far as Debenham and Brandeston, as well as from Framlingham and Saxtead! We have a selection of books to borrow and a manual to guide Participants through the talks. Christina:  Email: cdb1946@icloud.com

Saxtead News for September

News from All Saints Saxtead
Get ready for a great September!
Celebrating Saxtead, the Festival, 20th, 21st and 22nd September.
It is finally time to celebrate Saxtead! Mark Sanders has given the festival a spiritual and historical context that takes things to a deeper level as we celebrate a community that has stood for thousands of years. You may already be involved in the 101 tasks involved in getting the festival ready, for which we thank you. You may be taking part in one of the many different demonstrations, talks, cultural events or traditional pastimes, or encouraging the youngsters to create photos, music or scarecrows. Or simply coming along to be part of our village life - from afternoon tea to tug of war. For all of these, thank you. You may even win the Lucky Programme (£100).These are available from the Co-op But most importantly, you are celebrating being part of Saxtead and raising funds for its future . Thank you once more and see you there!
Another way to support Saxtead is to get fit by preparing for that other great event, the annual Ride and Stride for Churches on Saturday September 14th (see over for details)
Enjoy your Summer, see you in September!
