Parish Bits & Pieces

 
 Village Flower Planter
St Martin's has adopted a planter in the village - it is the one against the Village Stores. So that it is properly maintained and watered throughout the year, Pat Lucas has offered to co-ordinate its upkeep and we hope to have two or three people each month of the year to assist with any jobs that need doing (dead-heading, replanting, watering etc.) If you would like to help, please sign up against a month (or two!) on the list at the back of church. There will be no financial cost for any individual who signs up! 
 
Gift Aid
Last year we claimed back over £9,000 in gift aid monies - thank you to everyone who was able to help us achieve such a great amount! To make a gift aid payment you must have paid enough tax to cover the 25% claim on any donation. If you are unsure whether your personal financial circumstances make this possible,  our gift aid co-ordinator Barbara Smith is happy to speak to you confidentially if you so wish, or if you have any other questions speak with our Treasurer, Ivan Holt, or with Fr Shaun or the Churchwardens.

St Martin’s Friendship Group Outing

 

On Wednesday 9th August a convoy of seven cars left St Martin’s Church bound for the Anderton Boat lift near Northwich. This amazing piece of Victorian engineering was first opened in 1875, providing a 50-foot vertical link between the River Weaver and the Trent & Mersey Canal. After falling into disrepair, it was closed in the 1980s and was on the verge of being a forgotten hunk of rusting metal until it was brought back into use, after restoration, in 2002. There is a wonderful visitors’ centre and cafe, which many of those who went made use of before and after the boat trip! The weather remained dry all day, and everyone had a wonderful time.
