Round the Parishes

— Tidings, November 2019 —

Thank-you from Stockton.

Thanks to all who supported our Bric-a-Brac sale on Saturday 5 October, to raise funds for repairs to the church. The turnout was not big, but we raised £173.00. We are grateful for your donations; it’s still possible to donate to the fund. There will be a table outside W.J. Seppings Butchers (Hungate, Beccles) over the coming weeks to sell unsold items.

Remembrance Sunday, Ellingham.

On 10 November 2019, our five parishes gather in St Mary’s Church, Ellingham, and at the War Memorial to commemorate and name all those from each village who died in two World Wars.
