November Newsletter Information

In the chimes and newsletter we mentions a few things that we did not have space to give all the details.

Sign Up for our Newsletter

VoLT’s primary purpose to help share the responsibility of the care of the church with the wider community with a secondary purpose to help with the heritage and appearance of the wider village. We have produced a physical newsletter this time but it is time consuming and we would like to involve more people in the process of helping the village. Please consider either becoming a member see here or by subscribing to our newsletters by clicking here. Thank you.

Ebay Selling

This is an opportunity for you to let us sell some of your surplus possessions. If you want to maximise the money you get then we would suggest you sell these yourself but if you are not familiar with it then let us have a go and make a donation out of the proceeds. We will take pictures, add a description and list for you. If it sells then we will pack and despatch it for you and collect the money via PayPal. We will then give you the money less an agreed ‘donation’. This is initially as a trial and we will probably make changes as we go. We will suggest a donation rate for you and this will decrease as the selling price increases but you should consider this as a donation and you could get some money back. For more details email or ring Nigel on 720 189.

Did you know?

Snowdrops are native to mainland Europe and not the UK.  Although they may have been grown as an ornamental garden plant in the 16th century, there is record of them growing in the wild until the late 18th century.
