Freddie - we want to thank you all for your prayers and good wishes for our little grandson Freddie and his family at this difficult time. Freddie is coping very well and sends you his love. (Sandra and Joe)

Dorothy would like to say a big thank you for all your prayers and cards. She is recovering well.

Thank you so much for the gifts of food which I delivered to the Refugee Centre at St Nicholas of Tolentino in Bristol. They are so grateful as they feed up to 100 people every Tuesday and hand out bags of food to take to their homes. They are not allowed to work or earn money and have to live on very little every week. The centre has an ample supply of baked beans but would like rice, pasta, tins of tomato small tins of fish, also oil, no meat products.

Children's Christmas Toy Collection: I have been in touch with the local Health Visitors this week. There are 27 needy children in Cheddar and the surrounding villages who will be needing our help. The list is as follows: 0-3 months x 1boy&1girl: 3-6 months x 3 girls: 1-2years x 2 boys:2-4 years 2 boys & 7 girls: 5-6 years x 2 boys & 4 girls: 7-9 x 1 boy & 1 girl: 10-12 x 3 girls. There will be a box in the Church porch from next Sunday until 15th December - the final date. Your response every year has been amazing and much appreciated by the families. I must stress, however, that the toys must be Brand New. Second hand toys cannot be accepted for health & safety reasons. Many thanks. (Jeannette)

New Hall News: Very generous donations, events and sales have increased this week's total to £25,323!! Many thanks to everyone for their contributions. (Bob)
