Don't forget that as well as being the Queen's birthday, April 21st is also the day of the Annual Church Meeting for St Mary's. It takes place at 7.45pm and is the time to hear what has been going on in the various church groups over the past year. If you don't know what church groups there are then it's a good chance to find out. For those on the electoral roll there's also voting to be done for Church Council members, and this year Deanery Synod members too. That meeting is preceded by the annual "Vestry" meeting when the whole parish can choose the Churchwardens for the ensuing year. Whilst they don't now have the power to set rates or allocate seats, it is still an important and responsible position in the church. As usual we'll need two wardens for Hemyock and one for Culm Davy.
Both meetings take place in the Church Room; the vestry might be a little crowded!
