News November 2016

Our harvest festival evensong was well attended, and we are so grateful to Andy Duff for taking the service for us. The church looked absolutely
beautiful, and many, many thanks to all the skilled flower arrangers who give their time and talents to decorate the church. And a special thanks
to the school for their lovely and thoughtful work on the font.

There are still visitors around, many of whom note in our visitors’ book how much they appreciate the church being open, and how well-cared for
it is. Many have forebears buried in the churchyard: the ties of family are strong even after several generations.

Church treasurer wanted for Veryan
Do you have a few spare hours each month?
Do you use email, online banking and spreadsheets?
Don’t be shy if you are reasonably numerate and competent, and would genuinely be able to help.
You would attend 4 or 5 Church Council meetings a year, and keep the members informed about the church’s finances.
The outgoing treasurer will help and guide you throughout the first year. And she says “If you can run a household budget, you can do the job!”
Contact Robin [500950] or Christine [501727]
if you would like to help us.

‘PARISH NEWS’ – new style A message from the editor
Well, this is the last year for ‘Parish News’ in its present format and frequency of publication. The one potential co-editor, though enthusiastic and getting to grips with ‘Publisher’, is now likely to move away
from Cornwall.
I am happy to continue to produce issues in the current format, but in alternate months, [six issues a year instead of twelve]. The remaining six months will have a two-sided A4 news sheet which will carry notices, rotas, reading lists, the diary of events, and maybe tide tables. The bonus is of course that this can be produced quite cheaply, and we can even email it to you rather than deliver a paper copy if that’s acceptable.

It could of course be produced as a Word document by anyone willing to take it on! It will have the same layout each time so it’s only a case of typing in new information every couple of months….
It’s likely that the cover price of the main magazine will rise to £1, but it will still contain the same number of pages and variety of contents.
The subscription form will be in the December magazine as usual, and thank you to all our readers for your support and comments!

Advertising manager .
After many years of extraordinary skill in attracting advertisers [and extracting their money!] Pat Raine has decided that it’s time to retire.
Much to our delight Sue Day has agreed to take on this task. It remains for us to thank Pat for her wonderful work over the years and to welcome Sue
to the fold.
