Coffee Morning Success – 18th May

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.
