     NOVEMBER 18th 2020

    Revd. Jane's diagnosis was changed to Pancreatic Cancer in August  

    and she has since remained at home in the Rectory receiving good regular medical care.

    She is grateful to everyone for their messages of support and love.

    She is happy for people still to contact her by phone, mornings are easier for her,

    but some days are better than others. She remains very interested in all that goes on

    in the villages  and we hold her very much in our prayers.

    In August she sent a longer message that can be seen on the News & Notices page here

     


    REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY SERVICES 8th NOVEMBER

    The latest government advice is that a risk assesment for containing the virus must be evaluated with regard for public safety. Sadly we did not feel we were able to observe the requirements for the scheduled services at Gayton, Grimston and  Ashwicken and these public services were cancelled. There has been be a short private wreath laying ceremony at these Churchesand the names of the Fallen were read out. Our photo shows our reader Joy Smith at St Botolph's Church, Grimston and similarly Revd. Sue Martin carried out the ceremony at St Nicholas, Gayton and both later at Ashwicken All Saints.

     

    Commemorative service also took place at Gt Massingham and Harpley on the day. There is more from Harpley here.
