The Latest News From Around Capel

Weekly news for Sunday 19 June 2022

Dear friends,

Well, the last couple of days have certainly been the hottest this year so far, I do hope you’ve managed to find some shade to sit in. We spent a lovely day yesterday with the littlest grandchild sitting in the shade whilst she played in a makeshift paddling pool – we all stayed cool and she had a great time.

This week’s services are as follows:

9.30am Matins Ockley
10.30am Family Communion Capel
3-5pm Church teas Capel

Do come and celebrate father’s day with us – most Dads love a piece of cake!

The Vicarage fete is now just one week away and all our preparations are falling into place. You have all been so kind with your donations so I just have one last request: the bottle tombola could still do with some more bottles, in this regard anything goes so wine is lovely but it could just as easily be squash, bubble bath, or tomato ketchup – anything in a bottle counts! Please leave any donations in the boxes in our churches.

We also hope that some of you will come to the fete next week and bring your families, there will be lots for children to do, but we also have some great stalls for the adults, a delicious BBQ with burgers at only £2.50 and hot dogs £2 and tea and cakes for donations. Entry is only £1, I have attached a flier – we look forward to seeing you there.

Looking forward to the following week we are running the coffee/tea and cake stall at the military show, Leigh is still looking for cake bakers so please contact her on 07732 825908 if you can help. We are also asking for 8-10 helpers to join us on Thursday 28 June between 10 and 1pm to put up the marquee and decorate it. Please sign the sheet in church.

Thank you for all your help.

Lastly, this weeks photo of the week is the beautiful display outside the Crown pub in Capel – thank you Vanda and Vicki for making it look so lovely
