News August 2018

Church fete
The August magazine went to press too early for pictures and details of the fete to be included, but nevertheless huge thanks to everyone who planned,
prepared, produced, presided and patronised the afternoon’s activities – it’s
our major fund-raising event of the year, but it’s also a good opportunity for all of us to chat to friends old and new, for newcomers to the parish to find out who we are, and for visitors to experience a traditional summer fete – not forgetting the cream teas
Thank you too to Trounce for performing the formal opening [how ‘cool’ is that, to be known to so many simply by your first name – one of our local ’celebs’ of course!]
Churchyard flowers
Please, please note that the Diocesan regulations do NOT permit artificial
flowers, ornaments or solar or other lights on graves; we don’t want to upset families but these items should be removed, please.

News June 2018

Our PCC AGM was held after the service on Sunday 29 April; it’s always a brief meeting, to report that the church fabric is in good order, that the inventory of church property and possessions is up to date, and to receive a report on the church finances for the previous year.
The vestry meeting which follows appoints officers: We are deeply grateful to Malcolm Craven who has volunteered (well done!) to take over as PCC secretary, while Sarah Rundle, our former secretary, is now our treasurer. Huge thanks to Helen Robins for steering us through the previous few
years with such efficiency. While we are expected to appoint two churchwardens this is entirely dependent on
someone being willing to take on the role, which has becoming more and more demanding in recent years. We are so grateful that David Elliott has agreed to continue in the role, but we do ask anyone who might be willing to help to let Philip know!

Veryan church fete will be held on 21 July this year – a week before the
school breaks up for summer holidays. Please contact Ann or Margaret if you can help – we have only a few able to organise and run the event this year, and need your support.
Books! If you would be willing to take on the task of selling books, before the fete if that’s easier, we have a goodly accumulation of very
high quality books which have been donated to the church for
fundraising. Some are in mint condition, some are collectors’ items – contact Christine for more information.

New editor needed!
After many years the editor has reluctantly decided for a number of reasons that this year will be her last as editor of ‘Parish News’ – your last magazine in this format may well be December’s issue. Anyone who would like to
take on the rôle would have a free hand in the size, design and content – from the current A4 ‘newsletter’ to something a bit more ambitious.
Call Christine if you’re interested: ’desk-top publishing’ can be fun!
