Churches Open

  • We are very pleased to have a Service of Holy Communion at Fladbury Church on Sunday at 11.00am. This will be the first Holy Communion in this parish since lockdown. We shall follow the guidance of the national church.
  • St John’s will remain open after the service until 4.00pm for individual private prayer.
  • St Anne’s Church Wyre Piddle is open on Wednesdays for individual private prayer from 10.00am to 4.00pm.

In both churches, hand sanitiser is provided by the door and available seats are marked. We hope you’ll feel welcome to come to spend time in quiet reflection.

Fladbury Cricket Club

Last Saturday’s rain interrupted game at Bidford resulted in a 4 wicket victory for Fladbury in a very close finish. On Sunday, in another game with a tense finish, Ilmington claimed victory by 1 wicket.

This weekend Fladbury play host to Old Vigornians in a 40 over game on Sunday starting at 2pm.

Happily there is now a toilet open in the pavilion for the duration of all cricket matches. Our thanks to the Parish Council for allowing this facility.

Several people have been bothered by scams, perhaps to do with banking or online shopping  or telephone services.

  • Roy Stevens of Charlton says if you have any suspicions about requests to pay for your TV licence, apart from the official letter to the over 75s due in August, do ring him for a chat about it – tel: 861735. Emails or telephone calls could be scams.
  • Jacky Easter of Lower Moor has had a phone call, purportedly from Severn Trent, advising of "problems in your area" but then inviting her to "press button one" for further information. Don’t! This is a scam. Jacky says “Please advise everyone you know, especially the elderly”

Well, keeping in touch isn’t a scam – please let me know if you have any problems with it! And do let me know of any non-scam information you think would be helpful to others.
