LEAD THEFT
Some of you will have heard about the lead theft which took place last month. This is a major set back to us in the little church in Eyeworth. Just a few years ago we had major work completed on the roof with grant aid from Historic England (English Heritage as was) along with the hard work of fund raising by ourselves and our friends. The lead covering the nave roof was all taken and we discovered this on Oct 19th. It was reported to the police and our insurers. The amount of cover for lead on churches has been reduced due to the amount of theft in recent years so we will not get the full cost of replacing the lead. It may be that we need to look at alternatives.


HARVEST LUNCH

Wendy and the Team worked hard to provide a delicious Harvest Lunch for us on Saturday 1st October in the Village Hall. It was well attended and everyone enjoyed their time. We held a raffle and a quiz (where Lindsay  didn't do so well on a question about the Bible!!) but it was all great fun and we raised money for church funds too. Thank you to Wendy and all who worked hard to make our Harvest Lunch such an enjoyable time.

Parish Share 2015
Congratulations - the 2015 Parish Share has been paid in full. This is a marvellous achievement and a huge thank you to all who have helped and support the life of the church to enable this to be paid.

Churchyard grass cutting
It would be lovely to have more volunteers to help with this and keep the churchyard looking good.
Will you help please?
Please contact Lindsay to add your name to the rota or ask for further info.
 
 Friends of Eyeworth Parish Church
We have much work still to complete on the church building and it would be lovely if friends and supporters could form a Friends Group who would raise money to maintain, repair and restore the fabric of the church. If you are interested in this please speak to Wendy or Lindsay.
