We had intended that this should be held outdoors in the car park but, owing to the inclement weather, we had to eat in the Calvert Hall instead. However, this did not lessen the celebratory atmosphere and thirty four people – including members of our church family, some of our neighbours from Rosebery Road, and other guests – enjoyed food, entertainment and fellowship. You can see some pictures of the event in the Photo Gallery
We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped in any way with the event: cleaning and setting up the Hall; weeding the garden and car park; preparing and serving the food; setting up the exhibition of Coronation memorabilia; and clearing up afterwards. It was a real team effort and worth the work!
Preparations are in full swing for the lunch on Sunday. We are hoping to host between 30 and 40 people, and will be pleased to welcome anyone else who might decide to come on the day. All we need now is some good weather so that we can eat outside!
On Sunday 5th June after the morning service we shall be holding a lunch to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The tables will be set up in the church car park if the weather is fine, or in the Calvert Hall if it isn’t. All residents of Rosebery Road will be invited to come and join us, and we hope that as many as possible will be able to drop in for as long or short a time as they wish.
Our longstanding weekday user group, Headway Norfolk and Waveney, are relocating to premises which are better-suited to their needs so, once we have had a clear-out of our own, the Calvert Hall and side rooms will be available for hire during the day as well as in the evenings and at weekends. We hope to be able to welcome local groups to our premises very soon. If you need somewhere to meet, and would be interested to see if our facilities would suit you, please get in touch with our Property Steward on (01603) 483504 or at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are pleased to say that Drop-In meetings will recommence in the Lecture Room with effect from Wednesday 20th April from 2.00pm to 4.00pm, and will then take place on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. All welcome to come along for tea/coffee, cake and a chat.
We look forward to welcoming the Year 3 classes from Angel Road School on Monday 28th March when they visit the church to learn about the Easter story and to do some themed craft work.
