Good Friday… April 10th The Good Friday event at the Pop In Place proved as popular as ever with the hall full to capacity. There was an excellent performance by the JC Puppet theatre, these youngsters just get better and better with their puppetry skills and are very popular now within not only the Church but also the local community. A huge thank you to Pat Wharf and to all the youngsters who attended and to Steve Syrett on the sound. The Easter Bonnet parade was again a real delight with little Bethany Leigh winning the children’s section and Sarah Lye the adults. Our thanks to all who made bonnets and to the judges Gaye and Judi who had quite a difficult task. We were very happy to have Kath on the piano playing the Easter parade so beautifully.
