NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS AND INFORMATION - FOR MORE NOTICES PLEASE SEE CURRENT/FUTURE EVENTS PAGE

RETIREMENT - A MESSAGE FROM REVD.JOHN HARDY Dear Friends, After much reflection and thought, particularly after losing Liz, I realise I’ve reached a fork in the road regarding my current job. I have therefore decided to retire from parish work at the end of September 2022 in order to further my other interests and hobbies. I plan to take leave from Monday 5 September for the remainder of the month (rather than taking a month’s leave in May as I had originally planned). So I’m expecting my last service to be a celebration of St Mary’s patronal festival on Sunday 4 September, 6.30 pm. At this stage, I’d simply like to record my thanks to you all for your hard work and unswerving loyalty over a number of years, and to wish all the parishes well for the future. Yours sincerely, and God speed, Revd John Hardy

FUTURE DATES FOR OUT AND ABOUT.  Monday 21st February, Monday 21st March and Monday 11th April.  2 – 4 p.m. in Exning Community Church Hall. For more information please contact: Sarah Price 07762 282103 or e.mail exningoutandabout@gmail.com

CHILDREN'S SOCIETY BOXES I have to date received 4 boxes or contributions to the society. If you still have one can you please let me have or I can pick up as they will be counted the first week in February. The society relies heavily on the annual contributions so we want to collect as many boxes/candles as possible. Thank you. Judith McCarty

PRAYER GROUP Andrew & Rosemary Rycraft host a weekly prayer group on Fridays at their home at 19 Cardigan Street, Newmarket starting at 9.15am. The format is primarily silent prayer for about half an hour, followed by Coffee and generally home-made cakes! Everyone is welcome. If you haven’t tried it before, why not come along one Friday and see what you think? You can just turn up, but if you want to let Andrew & Rosemary know that you are coming, please phone them on 01638 665421.

NOMINATIONS FOR CHARITABLE GIVING Each year the church donates a percentage of its income to three charities decided by members of the church electoral roll. Nominations are sought for this year's donations. Although there are no restrictions on the charities nominated, of the three awards made, at least one has to be a Christian charity and one a local charity.  In order to produce the voting papers to be circulated in March, could you please let me have any nominations by the end of February together with a brief description of what the charity does. Thank you. John Pascall

REPORTS FOR THE ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING I am beginning to compile the paperwork for this year's Annual Parochial Church Meeting. If you run a committee or a group and wish to have a report included please send it to me. Thank you.  John Pascall

HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY (27th January) There will be no Holocaust Memorial Day event this year in Newmarket. It is suggested that you may wish to engage with an event on-line. One possibility is that arranged by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust  - Registration is at Holocaust Memorial Day Trust | UK Holocaust Memorial Day: 2022 Ceremony (hmd.org.uk)

FOODBANK UPDATE A message from Dr Tony White. Whilst we are well stocked with many things, we do currently have severe shortages of the following items: Long life semi-skimmed milk; Small bags of granulated sugar; Tinned meats (especially easy to prepare such as curries, stews, chilli con carne); Custard (tinned or instant packets); Rice pudding (tinned); Sweet biscuits.

Any help would be gratefully received - at the foodbank or contact me if that is not convenient - I am happy to receive donations at home. I am also aware that it is some time since I updated my contact list - if any changes are needed or if you think I have omitted someone please let me know.
