Carols by Candlelight

From David Smith, Churchwarden / Treasurer at St James’ Church in Castle Bytham …

On behalf of St James’ Church a big thank you to Sue Blunt for organising the Carol Singing, to all who joined her despite the bitterly cold weather, to Charlotte and Eamonn at the Castle who ensured that everyone set out in good spirits and to all who gave so generously. Together you raised a whopping £339.08 for Church Funds.

We are very grateful for your continued support, particularly during these times of so much uncertainty, which helps us maintain St James’ Church for the benefit of the whole community.

Threat to Lottery Terminal

From Mark and Nicky at Castle Bytham Stores …

Camelot have today informed us that our Lottery terminal will be withdrawn within 6 months due to a decline in sales.  As you can imagine this will be another huge blow to the shop! We would be very grateful if you could help us to try and save our Lottery terminal. Who knows you may become a millionaire in the process!

Holywell Verge Litter

From the letters page of the Glenside News (December 2010) …

As Wayside Warden on three of the important verges in Holywell, I regularly collect the rubbish littered on them.

I have spent hours recently picking up a large amount of folded computer paper littering the verges from Holywell to Vale Farm crossroads.  It is a soul destroying job and makes me very angry that such little consideration is given to the beautiful areas in which we live.

If this is a minor throwing paper from a car window – then adults should have more influence.  If it is an adult, then words fail me. There is enough fast food litter to cope with besides this tedious addition – for the second year in succession!
