As I write this email, the coronation is not far away and there is a steady drizzle but I am sure that the damp weather will not dampen the festivities all over the land.
Our villages are decked in flags and bunting and tomorrow looks to be a fun-filled day in Ockley on the Green with teas provided throughout the day by St Margaret’s folk. In Capel the flower festival in Aid of Scott Boadwood pre-school will be worth visiting all weekend with teas provided. Look in the notes for opening times.
Yesterday’s Capel ‘s got talent was a roaring success and Beatrice, who won the competition, received many accolades and a standing ovation for her moving performance.
Next Sunday is the start of Christian Aid week and Cafe church, at the Crown, will see a more elaborate breakfast with lovely pastries and we hope that many of you will come to enjoy what’s on offer and donate for this good cause.
I have attached the lectionary readings but please note that these will not be used in the coronation services. The picture today had to be of bluebells. They are in their full glory now so please use some of this long weekend to enjoy them. They are everywhere.
