July 2022 News

Colin Dixon, Chairman of FOSM, writes:


The Choral Eucharist for the Platinum Jubilee was very well attended on 5th June and the breakfast afterwards was also a success. Coffee, tea and croissants were served to the harmonic ringing of the Hawkesbury bells for a quarter peal on six bells.


We are now finalising the preparations for the Open Tower event on 23rd and 24th July which looks to be a must-go event. The Church Tower will be open for people to see the Church Bells in their place and to have a go at ringing the bells. There will be teas and coffees and cake. There will also be picnics on the lawn of Church Farm House opposite the Church on the Sunday afternoon and hopefully some live music as well. Do come along everyone is welcome.


Further afield we are looking forward to the Friends of St. Mary’s Pimms tent at the Hawkesbury Show. We will in the same place we were last year on the edge of the Show ring. (See picture above from last year’s Show.) You can have a nice glass of Pimms whilst watching the events in the Show Ring or chatting to friends – knowing that you are supporting the wonderful St. Mary’s Church at the same time.


The Churchyard seems to be a haven for fast growing weeds at the moment especially along the paths. If you can spare an hour or two, do pop in and have a go. Some of us will be there from 10.30am to 12.30pm on Saturday 9th July.
