We’re never happy! Couple of months ago complaints about the cold and wet were major topics of conversation and now it is the heat and we gardeners need rain. But please do not let it rain on Saturday 1st July – Garden Fete Day in Wark. 2pm onwards on the green with teas in the Town Hall. Contributions to the usual stalls, tombola this year, but please no bric-a-brac, would be most welcome. Jane and Tony Abrams (Dial House) are collecting or just bring them along on the morning to the green. Raffle tickets are now on sale.
The North Tyne has, for a number of years, had the privilege of having Deacon Anne Taylor and her husband Eddy ministering to MURC and latterly St. Michael’s have been `building sharing’ here in Wark to great success (understand it is being shared as a model for other areas) and now they are retiring (near to my now neck of the woods) to Whitehaven. Anne will lead a final Service in Wark on Sunday 2nd July at 10.30am and at Bellingham on the same day there will be a celebratory service for her time with us at 3pm with a tea to follow and all will be most welcome. A lunch is arranged for Sunday 30th July at 12noon in Wark Town Hall for which I would suggest you contact Vicky or Steve Herod on 01434 230180 for further details and importantly to book a seat. That is the contact to use also should you wish to give a donation to a retirement gift. We all hope they have a happy and long retirement.
After months of not much going on there is now not only a Garden Fete but also a dog show, SCRUFFS, on Saturday 22nd July at 12noon again on the green with proceeds to the Town Hall. It’s many years since something like that happened in Wark and the classes do sound interesting. Anyone brave enough to arrange a cat show?
Off now for a couple of months – gardening. Back in September with Harvest details…. Such fun?? Where does the year go?
Love to all John xxx
