Street Party .....

Hi Everyone

I hope you are all keeping well.  The A518 is blissfully quiet no blues and twos. Since moving to Haughton this is the first time it has been peaceful in my garden. Every cloud has a silver lining. Must enjoy it while I can.

Nice to have a lovely clean house, all the ironing done and a tidy garden.

When all this business is over think we should have a street party. Anyone agree with me agree?

Stay safe everyone.

Haughton Village Hall

All hirers of the Village Hall have now cancelled for the time being, which includes the Art Classes, Zumba, Pilates, and Line Dancing, due to the Covid-19 virus and the essential need for everyone to 'self-isolate'.

Some thoughts on home worship for Passion Sunday

Jesus set his face to Jerusalem and tribulation, trial and crucifixion. Yet "the light shines in
the darkness and the darkness cannot overcome it".

Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
Collect of the Day

Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us that what we do for the least of our brothers and
sisters we l also for you.
Give us the will to be the servant of others as you were the servant of all and Give up your
life for us,
But are alive today, and reign now and forevermore.

Read the Epistle from
Romans 8:6-11
and the Gospel (a bit long this one!) from
John 11:1-45

Offer some short prayers:

Lord, We pray for the Church at this time of uncertainty, especially for our own four
parishes of Bradley, Church Eaton, Derrington, and Haughton.
Pray for the housebound and for all who feel isolated and lonely.
Pray for your own families, especially those not able to visit you, or those you are not able
to visit.

Pray for our health services and for all who care for others.

Say the Lord's Prayer (perhaps when you wash your hands!)
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be your name,
your kingdom comes, you will be done on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and forever.

May your Spirit give us all a sense of calmness and peace, and the Blessing of the Lord
Jesus Christ we with you always.

Best Kept Village - March Newsletter

Many of you will be wondering what is happening with all the uncertainty surrounding Coronavirus.

I received an E-Mail yesterday saying that the BKV County competition has been cancelled for this year. 

However, the committee has got together with lots of handwashing and decided that a lot of what happens each year is designed to make the village look good and tidy. We are therefore going to continue with the litter picks, flower borders and garden, and hanging basket competitions. For increased safety, there will be disposable gloves if you need them and we recommend that you stay 6 feet apart if possible (that is normal for litter picking anyway)

Expect the dates to be released in the next week as we finally tweak everything.

This year we are also trying to grow most of our own plants from mini plug plants and as the plants grow I may be appealing for greenhouse space to grow some of them on. 

We do of course have all your safety in mind but also realise if you are stuck at home you may be getting bored so this may give a little light exercise.

If you have any questions please E-Mail me

P.E. - For all those who are home schooling

It's been a difficult week for all, with all our clubs and shutting, and now hotels, bars, and cinemas, but everywhere there's is people offering help and adapting to our new situation.

Here's something I found online to help all those who find themselves at home homeschooling their children.

P.E. with Joe!

Please feel free to share this video, and please let me have anything else you think might help us through these times.
