You will see at the left hand side of this page 2 new links related to the St Thomas Community Building Project.
The upper link entitled “Community Building Project” will take you to the Facebook page for the project, regularly updated with information as we proceed to get designs and approval for developing the site.
The lower link “Thurstonland & Stocksmoor Recommended Services” takes you to a Facebook Group where, for a small donation, local trades can post details of their services, or villagers can post recommendations for their neighbours. All donations will go towards funding the re-development of the church. This is a closed group, so you will initially have to apply for membership before being able to join it – but don’t worry, all villagers are welcome and will be accepted!
As part of the Festival f Faith a fun time was had by all at the first Vicars and Curates Village Cricket Match…. Vicar’s won, due to the brilliance and sportsmanship of the opposing team who were magnanimous in defeat. The return leg will be played next year. What a wonderful evening!
Thank you to everyone who came, who played, supported, cheered, baked and cooked to make it such a fun event, one now firmly fixed in the Village calendar. A special thanks to Lee Booth the organiser, and to the Cricket Club for their hospitality.
Thurstonland Community Choir invite you to join them at the
Taste of Spring
A Ploughman’s Supper with food and drink sourced from some of our finest local producers and a performance of John Rutter’s a Sprig of Thyme suite of folk song arrangements.
As we are raising money for the installation of the village defibrillator – a key aid to save lives, all our suppliers have generously donated, and we hope that the whole village will come out to support us.
Where else could you get a high quality supper with all drink and a concert for only £7.50 while also potentially saving lives?
Tickets from any choir member or via Angela or Robin Carmichael on 666294.
