News...We'll endeavour to keep you posted with all the lastest news and information from around our neck-of-the-woods, but please feel free to let us know of anything you think is newsworthy.
- Here at St Margaret's, we've teamed up with Donr.com to make it possible to donate to St Margaret's Church funds via text giving - I'm sure you've all seen adverts on telly whereby you text a keyword followed by a number to donate that same amount, and this is exactly what you can do for us now!
All you have to do is text the word STMARGS followed by a number between 1 and 20 to 70085, and you will donate that amount, eg text STMARGS5 to donate £5. It will cost you the donation amount plus your standard message rate, and 95% of your donation will go directly to help us. You will also have the option to Gift Aid your donation, if appropriate.
We've also introduced a card reader to enable visitors to make contactless donations.
St Margaret's APCM Reports can be downloaded from here.
- Have you seen the wonderful work our Churchyard volunteers have been doing at St Margaret's? We now have a beautiful flint wall along the Well Lane boundary, revealed after years of ivy growth has been removed. And so many more of our monuments are now visible. If you would like to help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- The Pop-Up Café & Information Hub comes to the Cricket Club, KGV Field, Glebe Close the 2nd Friday of each month.

I am aware that there may be pages on the website that have lost their pictures - this is due to a 'helpful' surprise update of the website software that changes how pictures are added to a page. It hasn't affected all pages so I am going through and adding back the missing photos, but please bear with me as I have to find out which ones they were first before I can add them back.
