Christ Church - the Revd Andrew Hemming, Assistant Priest for Redhill; 01761-462582     M: 07584-124198                                  e: <andrewmhemming@btinternet.com> The weather may still be cold, but with the increased daylight the minds of the Christ Church congregation are turning to tidying up the churchyard. We are seeking some professional help to carry out a Crown Lift on a number of our trees, though nothing too drastic is planned. (A Crown Lift is where some of the lower branches are removed to allow more light to the grass and plants beneath.) This still leaves us a lot of work trimming the boundary hedges and clearing the ground immediately in front of them. Also, we need to tidy up the ground to the north of the church, where a number of graves have become covered in weeds. For this we plan a series of Working Parties, starting on 25 th  February and thereafter every fourth Saturday of each month. The Working Parties we held last year were great fun, with a wide range of work to be done from light trimming to heaving strimming. If you would like to come along and support us on any of these Saturdays you would be most welcome. Refreshments are in ready supply. In addition to work on the trees, we have quite a bit of work to do on the roofs and pointing to the walls, which will stretch our financial resources. So, in true Village Church style, we are planning some fund raising activities. The first of these will be a Ploughman’s in the Village Hall on Saturday 20 th May, from 12:30 to 2pm. All are welcome. Tickets will be £6 a head (£5 if you wish to resist the puddings). These events are always a great get together for the Redhill community. Do come along and invite your neighbours. Please put it in your diary today. If you would like to know more about what your church has been getting up to over last year, and plans for this year, we have our AGM on 6 th  April in church starting at 7pm, refreshments provided. We aim to make this a real celebration of our church and our community. Do come along and perhaps offer your suggestions for how we may better serve the village. With every blessing to you Andrew  ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Redhill WI - Liz Shorney You may decide that Redhill WI is the place for you and decide to join us.
