Hulland Hippos - Raising Money for BBC Children in Need
Hulland Hippos raised £177 for Children in Need during their Pudsey Bear morning. Thank you to the Hippos families and team for their support.
Posada - The Travelling Knitivity
This year in each of our five parishes we are having a travelling nativity consisting of knitted figures of Mary, Joseph and a donkey. During December, these figures will stay in different homes in the villages for a day at a time before being passed onto the next home. We do this to remember the long journey Mary and Joseph made from Nazareth to Bethlehem. We also do it to help us prepare for Christmas and to feel we have a part to play.
If you would like to take part and host the Holy Family for a day, please click on this link to get the phone number for the co-ordinator in your village. You could invite neighbours to join in too.
