St Mary's Church On Wednesday December 6th, Members of St Mary's guild met to enjoy their
Christmas Party which proved to be a very pleasant afternoon.

St Mary's Church At this time of year the number of people visiting Lapland increases tenfold. There are now regular flights to this icy outpost of northern Europe and many families take the opportunity to visit 'Father Christmas'. It's a sort of seasonal Disneyland for children of all ages to experience the magic of meeting Santa Claus on his home turf. In fact, the idea of travelling to Father Christmas's home is so popular, that it was one of Jimmy Saville's most requested 'Fix-its', even back in the days when there were no direct flights. Being able to grasp
tangible evidence of what Christmas is all about seems to be so important to people, that they are willing to pay what amounts to the cost of an annual holiday to go there. The problem is - this isn't what Christmas is all about.

General News The village were shocked to hear of the death of 3 year old Erin Thompson following a car accident in which her father also died.Her brother Jack, 4 years was also involved but was not badly injured and is now at home with his mother Jilly and partner Simon at Mill Leat.

What a joy it was to see members of 1st Hemyock Scout Group proudly carrying their new flag into St Mary's for a blessing recently and to see them, along with the Brownies, honouring the Fallen at our Remembrance Sunday service. The parish church was almost full for this service and the act of everyone placing a petal on a poppy outline followed by the reading of the poem 'In Flanders Fields' was for many most moving.
