Over 40 people gathered at a coffee morning hosted by Ellen McConnell on May 18th, which raised a whopping £275.00 for badly needed church funds. In addition to an amazing array of cakes and superb coffee, there was a bric-à-brac stall, beautiful hand made cards made by Lyn and Chris of Lincoln Fields and a great raffle. Thanks to Ellen’s networks in the village and further afield, as well as her community spirit, the event brought together people from a number of local villages, which was something that many people commented was particularly enjoyable – for local villagers especially since there are few opportunities to meet together. Our church is the only public building in the village, and the newly formed ‘Friends of Billingsley’ are looking at ways to use the church facilities for community activities and events, as well as keeping it open for worship.
We are delighted to announce that our Coffee Morning held at the church to raise funds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal raised £132.70.
A big thank you to everyone who came along and supported the event especially to the representatives of the Bridgnorth Branch of the British Legion who were also in attendance; their Standard Bearer Jim Hall Gough and their President Chris Beck.
