Loxbeare July Round Up 2023
Last year at this time we were sharing in the Queens Platinum Jubilee celebrations. This year we celebrate Kind Charles III coronation and we wish him a successful & peaceful reign as we remember him in our prayers.
Our celebrations began with a flower & craft festival in the church. Sat, Sun & Monday, with a wide variety of wonderful crafts & flower arrangements. An excellent display. Thank you to all who contributed & to those who put much time & effort to organise & set everything up. For those who came to support & those who stayed at the Church during viewing times & provided cups of tea/coffee & biscuits.
Monday afternoon finished with St Georges & St Pauls bell ringers who rang the bells. A fitting end to the weekend celebration.
Our Coronation service was held on the Sunday morning with a royal theme. Thank you to all who led & took part in any way. In the evening an 'Ultimate Cheese' & other deli treats was held in the Village Hall including a 'royal quiz'. A very enjoyable time. Again many thanks to all who organised & prepared the lovely food & the quiz.
It was good to be part of the Mission Community Group Service at Calverleigh on the 28 May celebrating the birthday of the Church at Pentecost. It was a lovely service joining together with the Exe Valley Choir & band. Thank you to all who participated & organised.
Please see centre pages of the magazine for Loxbeare services.
There will be PCC meeting on 18 July at Jean's.
A forward notice. Our Harvest festival will be on the 17 Sept in the Church at 6.30. More details in the next magazine, with Harvest Supper on Monday 18.
Our thoughts & prayers are with Derek, Marlene, Katie, Viv, and any one else feeling unwell, & to any who have lost loved ones recently.
Happy Birthday to all with birthdays in July & August & to any celebrating special occasions.
