St Mary's Under Fives Do you have or know anyone who has children under 5 who would like to meet up with other parents and carers.  SMUFs meets every Tuesday at Church House from 9.30-11.30am.  We would also like volunteers to join us as 'befrienders'.  For more information contact Teresa Michaux. ( teresamichaux@parishofcalneandblackland.org.uk )

Remembrance Sunday this year will be very special as it commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.  We are decorating St Mary's Church with hand made poppies on the pillars.  If you would like to help by creating some poppies speak to Joanna Childs or Jane Wells (patterns available).

Parish Treasurer
Graham Spencer, who has had the role of Parish Treasurer for several years, would like to step down from this post.  We are very grateful for his work on the Parish finances and owe him many thanks.  Graham is willing to have a hand over period with a new treasurer, but would like to stand down from the role at the end of September.  Do you have the skills and interest to take on this important role in the parish?  If so contact Rev Bob Kenway for more information via Church House (01249 816522.)

Midweek Club for Young People
There will be a meeting for anyone interested in helping with this on 4th July at 4pm at Church House.  This will be called the Wednesday Club and will be for ages 7-11, starting on 5th September.
