CHURCH SERVICE: On Sunday 8th March 2020 (2nd Sunday of Lent) a “Sung Eucharist” took place at the local church. The service was conducted by local vicar Rev.d Cora Yarrien. Readings on the day were: Romans 4-1<>5, 13<>17 by Fiona Pagdin, Gospel Readings: John 3 – 1<>17 by Monica Hockenhull.   Intercessions: Dylan Boddy –Organist Geof Webb. After the service those present were invited to remain for refreshments.

GARDENING CLUB: With a hint of spring in the air, a large number of people turned out for the March meeting of the Sutton and Barnby Moor Gardening Club, which on this occasion was also the group’s AGM. The present chairperson Jenny Bailey welcomed everyone to the event and gave a brief outline of the clubs progress over the last 12 months. Those present were provided with a copy of the agenda plus a latest financial statement. The usual reports were given by the chairperson, followed by the treasurer’s report and were explained in detail to members.

A suggestion to raise the annual subscription from £12 to £15 per annum was put to the gathering and was unanimously accepted. This was mainly due to the increased costs of invited speakers at monthly meetings. The present committee then stood down, to allow for the formation of a new committee. With no nomination put forward, the former committee were asked if they were prepared to stand again. They agreed to stand en-bloc for a further 12 months and this was ratified from the floor and much appreciated by the membership.

On the conclusion of the official business members were invited to remain for wine and nibbles and refreshments, with an opportunity to purchase garden paraphernalia and plants donated. A few vacancies still remain within the group and with 28 out 31 members attending on the night places are filling up quite quickly! This is due to the efforts of the officers and committee members working on behalf of the club. For details about the club and its activities please contact Jenny Bailey on (01777) 708 155. New members and visitors are always welcome
