Saturday 24th November 10.00am-2.00pm Pratts Bottom Christmas Market at the Village Hall.

Remembrance Day - “A Village - and a Parish - Remembers” You are all invited to help us to prepare for, take part in, visit our Remembrance Day Service and Exhibition exactly 100 years after the end of the First World War.

We hope you might like to help us create a fitting exhibition in Pratts Bottom Village Hall that day. Our Railway Society is working on a theme of “Railways in the Great War”; the Village School will produce children’s work. What we also very much like is to share your family memories. Would you like to lend us any photographs, letters, post-cards, memories from your relatives who were involved? Perhaps you have medals, trench art, parts of uniforms, scrapbooks, albums, maps or other items. A single photograph, a simply story of service or loss may be all you have - but it is important to you and to us! Don’t worry too much about mounting your display - though it will be nice if you do. We have display boards at the Hall.

Just contact Peter Hudson on 01689 858583 or email him on and tell him what you can produce. You can bring your contributions for the exhibition on Saturday 10th. This is probably the last opportunity for you to remember publicly those men and women from your family who lived one hundred years ago.

The centre-piece of our day will, of course, be the Service of Remembrance led by Rev Ruth Murfitt in the Village Hall starting at 10.30am. This is certain to include the traditional laying of poppy wreaths, the Last Post, Two-minute Silence and Reveille.

You are all welcome at the Service but you are equally welcome just to come to the Exhibition which will stay open till 4 0’clock.

We hope lots of you will want to get involved

Pilgrim—From January 2016
Pilgrim is a new teaching and discipleship course from the Church of England that explores what it means to travel through life with Jesus Christ. This is a course of participation which encourages the practice of biblical reflection and prayer, exploring key texts that have help people since the early Church.
From January 2016, at 10am on the first Sunday of each month at St. Mary’s, whilst the Ablaze service on in church, we will study this course in the Ede Lounge
