News from Saxtead
The Saxtead Ladies Coffee Morning was very well attended and lovely to see both Ann Dyson and Deborah Sharman again. The lovely oak tree chosen for the Queen’s Green Canopy in memory of her Jubilee has been planted with a sturdy deer proof park guard in the centre of the green, safely away from the water mains which have been giving trouble lately. The Oak was donated by the County Council, the guard by the Parish Council and both were kindly put in place by George Cullingford.
Easter Flowers: Please can flowers for Easter Day be brought to the church on Saturday. Traditionally there are no flowers in Anglican churches during Lent or Good Friday.
We hope that plenty of children will visit the church on Easter Day for the Saxtead Easter Egg baskets - hung on the branches of our beautiful Cherry tree, safely out of reach of foxes and rabbits and badgers and stoats. We are serving Tea, Coffee and Hot Cross Buns from 10.30 to the service at 11.15 on Easter Day, but the egg baskets will be there till 5.30 so that even children away for the day can come and get one before bedtime!
Our talented local artist, Lorette Roberts, has designed a delightful Saxtead in Summer Diary of Events which will be delivered with this newsletter, and the Programme of Summer Seminars to be held in Saxtead Church, and are free however Her Majesty the Queen wanted funds to be raised to help the disadvantaged amongst us, and voluntary donations will go to the Salvation Army homeless shelter in Ipswich.
