Everyone is welcome at the church service 10.30 am tomorrow, when we will remember and honour her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
As nationally it’s Heritage Weekend and St Peter’s is a Grade 1 listed heritage building, there will be plenty of information about this ancient building available.
Out of respect for her Majesty’s status as Head of the Church, we have withdrawn our scarecrow entries. We are very sorry to cause this disappointment. However, we hope to have them on display on the weekend of our Harvest Festival.
Buckingham Palace has announced today, 8th September 2022, the sad news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This is a significant bereavement for our nation and will be felt deeply by many of us.

We pray for her family and friends in their grief as they come to terms will their loss.

Thornton Community Centre is undergoing a ‘makeover’ as we approach the 50th anniversary of the opening of the hall in 1973.
Decorators (Johnson Wellborn Decorating – 07543 350832) have recently spent 4 days at the Centre refreshing the paintwork in the Sports Hall foyer, disabled toilet, kitchenette and locker room, creating a light and airy space.
The Sports Hall has proved to be an ideal space this year for childrens’ parties – with plenty of room for a bouncy castle in the hall. (If you are thinking of booking a party do check the height first though!).
During October half term – Glenfield Electrics will be at the premises upgrading, renewing and repairing all the lighting throughout both halls and outside.
