NEWS from LITCHAM ALL SAINTS

First, our thanks to all who made the Christmas Lunch and Bazaar such a great success.  We raised £500, despite there being a lot of Christmas fairs in other villages – so that was particularly good.  Thank you all who helped in any way and for coming.  The backroom music was an added bonus and helped with the ambience.  Thank you André for that.
Our next fundraiser is the Lexham Hall Snowdrop Walk.  We organise the refreshments in aid of Litcham All Saints Church by kind permission of Mr & Mrs Neil Foster.  We need lots of soup, cakes and sausage rolls, please.  It is on Sunday 10th February from 11 am to 4pm.  See post
Although it seems a long time ago, the weekend of the 100 years centenary of the end of the First World War was a very busy one.  Following Commemoration at Beeston, on Sunday 11th November there was a very good turnout at Litcham when the Reverend Dennis Ackroyd conducted the Remembrance Service.  That evening, Godwick Barn was the venue for “The Battle’s Over Commemoration” successfully organised by Tittleshall Parish Council with guest of honour, General, the Lord Dannatt former head of the army who spoke movingly of his grandfather, whose medals he wore, as well as touching on his extensive experience of the army of today and some of the consequences for soldiers and of the debt we owe.  Also present was the Bishop of Lynn and the High Sheriff of Norfolk.
The Remembrance Day Service collection from Litcham All Saints, Beeston St Mary’s and the Fransham Churches together with generous donations for the Appeal from Litcham and Beeston Parish Councils amounted to £708.96.  Grateful thanks to John Jones, RBL who forwarded the collection to the Norfolk County Poppy Appeal 2018.
30th December, is a Fifth Sunday – come and join us at Litcham All Saints for the Benefice Service at 10 o’clock.  There will be a few nibbles and a glass of wine afterwards.  We look forward to welcoming you.
We all wish you a very Happy and Peaceful New Year.  Love and God Bless, June Bevan

PS- I have noticed that when I have short-changed Chester his treats – yes, he counts them – and then he lies down and whistles through his nose!
