Charity of the Month:
Blind Veterans UK

Blind Veterans UK

Blind Veterans UK are there to support anyone who has served in the Armed Forces, or who has done National Service, and who is now living with significant sight loss.

They help blind ex-Service men and women lead independent and fulfilling lives by supporting them with a wealth of in-depth expertise, experience and a full range of services.

They give veterans much-needed support to adjust to sight loss, overcome the challenges of blindness and enjoy daily life. The charity has been offering physical and emotional support to vision-impaired veterans since 1915.

Our Eco Messy Church was a great success last month led very ably by Heather and Julie Kent. We made useful things like bird feeders, plant pots and pen holders from materials that we might otherwise throw away and they looked good and were fun to make! Lots of families and unattended adults came to join in the fun as well so please keep coming.

V. E. Day Celebrations & Exhibition

V. E. Day Celebrations & Exhibition

23 to 25 May
in St Mary's & Fairford Community Centre

We need anything at all to do with the Second World War. The idea is that we put together an exhibition of what we ate, drank, wore, read etc etc on the 8th May 1945. We need uniforms too.

Please look in your attics, cupboards, drawers and sheds to see if you have anything suitable including photographs!

If you have could you please phone or email the Parish Office and let us know what you can offer us. We will then make a note of it and contact you nearer the time to collect it. We will also need helpers. Setting up exhibition, bar etc etc.

Very many thanks from the VE Day Exhibition Committee.
