Help desperately needed!

We’re still very much in need of more help with cleaning and brass polishing in St.Oswald’s Church. If you  could spare some time - it doesn’t take all that long - to help, please get in touch with Joan Hudson or Midge Dobbs ASAP.


to Jessica Duckworth who has passed her Silver Award for the RSCM with flying colours. Her medal will be presented to her in Derby Cathedral on Sunday 25th November. There is a huge amount of work involved to reach this standard; the exam alone lasts 45 minutes. Well done Jessica!

Ashbourne remembers

Ashbourne memories of the first World War are shown in a new and poignant display of photographs, with a moving poem written by a local lady about a man who died. Do have a look at these striking recollections of those times, as we commemorate 100 years of remembrance.

Could you help?

Gillie and I are having to reconsider our commitments. We’re looking for volunteers to take over the responsibilities as contacts for MAF, TWAM and USPG in St. Oswald’s. I’ll keep on into January (and deal with all the Christmas stamps!) None of these jobs is onerous, but please contact me  for  more detail without commitment.

The Neil family

are on their way to Papua New Guinea to begin a new phase of their life and ministry there. Please pray for them all as they settle into a new home, a new community, a new church and for Miles - a new school. It was so good to see them a few weeks back and many of us now know them as friends and not just as names in the Magazine.
