FRIENDS OF ST. IPPOLYTS CHURCH
Thank you to everyone for your generous harvest donations. St. Ippolyts Church looked and smelled wonderful with an assortment of both fresh produce and a variety of groceries.
We are very grateful to Friends who were available on Monday morning to clear and pack the produce into boxes and to St. Ippolyts School children who also came into the church to prepare food gift boxes and write a friendly note to accompany their gift. These were delivered to our own friends in St. Ippolyts for different reasons. We wanted to give them a harvest present, to say we are thinking of them. The main bulk of the groceries was taken to the Homeless Shelter in Hitchin and was very gratefully received. The remaining boxes were delivered to the Food Bank in Letchworth.
Both the Homeless Shelter and the Food Bank are always grateful to receive groceries throughout the year and we are reminded of those less fortunate than ourselves.
We will be decorating the church for Christmas on Saturday 21st December from 9.30am. This will include the flowers. Please come and help if you can. Further details will be in December Pax.
Frances Williams, Carol Scott and Joan Pinkstone
