The latest edition of the newsletter is now available, providing a downloadable source of information, detailing news from around the Beacon, and events coming up in the next month or two.
I suppose I should have expected there to be more snow this winter. It is January and I am living in a hilly location in the northern part of England. It really should not have come as a surprise as it is an ordinary occurrence for this time of year. Yet I am from the South and we rarely get snow once in a year, let alone twice. Even though I knew it would snow more here than at home, for some reason I hadn’t fully accepted it – and so there was still that mixture of surprise, trepidation and excitement when I noticed it snowing for the second time since Christmas.
January 2015 Report from Karen James
From the very beginning of January, all the regular groups have continued apace, with 15 to 20 children (and their parent and carers) attending, Beyond the Ramp every Monday afternoon, Christian Club at Nether Green Junior School numbering about the same- although it couldn’t quite compete with the appeal of throwing snowballs last week! The new monthly Saturday morning ‘Mega kids’ group is offering a chance to explore a bible character through games, crafts and cooking and is attended by children from both Nether Green area and people who have attended groups at Stephen Hill.

Grapevine for 22nd February
The cake stall at the Saturday Coffee Morning on the 11th February was run by Annabel and Rosie from the Dance Class. They raised a total of £125 for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. They gave £25 of this to the church which I have also sent to Bluebell Wood. Well done to Annabel and Rosie. Trevor.
