The Parish Garden of Remembrance
We are most grateful to Coastal Housing for all their work undertaken in the Garden of Remembrance as part of their work for the community. Thank you Andrew McCutcheon for all his hard work - the garden is looking wonderful. We are always pleased to receive any financial donations towards the upkeep of the Garden. It is a lovely, calm space in the centre of town.
Pet Service St Teilo’s played host to the benefice Pet Service, which had a host of creatures great and small in attendance, the duck playing a very vocal part in the proceedings!! However, Rector said that silence fell over all, including the animals, at the final blessing. Thank you to all who contributed to this wonderful service.
Teddy Bears’ Picnic St Illtyd’s played host to a Teddy Bears’ Picnic. All Teddies were accompanied by a responsible adult or child and a fun time was had by all in the wonderful September sunshine.
Harvest Thanksgiving Festival Next Sunday we will celebrate Harvest Thanksgiving Festival in our churches. We would appreciate donations of money for Neath Foodbank and Wateraid. The money will be split between them. Please put cash in an envelope or make a cheque payable to YOUR church. Thank you.
