Red Cross Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal



There will be a retiring collection at all services in St Ippolyts tomorrow (6th Sept.) in aid of the Red Cross Europe Refugee Crisis appeal, so please come to church with some extra money in your wallet to donate to this cause. Revd Ann has decided tomorrow is the right day for this as she will be baptising three boys in St Ippolyts and marking their foreheads with a cross. The Red Cross appeal seems the right one to give to, or, if you prefer, go direct to

I trust that most of you reading this message will have learnt that Reverend Ann Pollington has been appointed vicar of St. Dunstan’s in Cranbrook, Kent.  Her licensing service will be held there on Tuesday 17th November at 7.00pm.  I trust that many of her parishioners/friends might like to attend this service.  Her new church is about 100 miles from us in Hertfordshire and driving time by car via the M25 and the Dartford Crossing is at best about 2 hours.

We were wondering if there was sufficient interest in hiring a coach.  This would need to leave Hitchin at about 3.30pm. from Woodside car park as the coach company reckon on the journey taking 2½ hours but we would be in part of the

‘rush hour’.  We would plan to leave Cranbrook before 9.30pm. and our journey should be quicker on the way back but we would probably not be back in Hitchin until just before midnight.

(If starting from London, the nearest railway station is Staplehurst which is mainly served by trains from Charing Cross with a journey time of approximately 1 hour.  Staplehurst is about 5 miles from Cranbrook.  There is an hourly bus service to Cranbrook or there will be taxis but there is no suitable late bus back to the station).

The coach fare would be cheapest if we could totally fill a 53 seater,

but if we could only fill a 35 seater, the cost would be around £15

per person.

I need to get back to the coach company as soon as possible so if you would be interested in attending and having the use of the coach, please either email me or

call 01462-432445, on which line there is an answer machine, no later than Sunday 4th October.  Your decision would not be binding but we do need to see whether there is enough support to book a coach.

If you have any queries please either email or call me.
