Friends of Postwick Church News
On 3rd December we had our Christmas Bazaar which went well and we raised £530 for the church fabric fund.  Thanks to all who worked so hard that weekend and our customers of course.

Also – it may not have escaped the notice of those who walk through the churchyard that our 150 year-old cedar tree, which was covered in ivy,  was felled in September.   There is a lot of wood there for the taking and if anyone cares to make a small donation to the church that would be appreciated.

Churchyard Work Party
A big “thank you” to all those who turned out to help with clearing the churchyard on 8th October.  A lot of hard work was undertaken but the southern boundary has been cleared of unwanted undergrowth and now looks much clearer.  Coffee and doughnuts made for a good break! 

Cancer Awareness Day
Since 30 September was Cancer Awareness Day, it was decided to mark this in the village on Tuesday 27th at the Postwick Coffee Shop, so in place of charging the usual meagre sums of 50p for coffee/tea, cakes etc., donations were requested instead.  A grand total of £65 was raised – many thanks to all those who contributed, and to Nadine for organising this.
