Eco Corner:  Frogs at last! Well, it seems quite a few tadpoles have

turned into healthy frogs under the cover of weeds growing across the

pond. On the other hand, some of the tadpoles have opted to stay as

tadpoles, maybe because of the cooler spring, and delay or postpone

their development. Fascinating! See photo on our Eco board. Dave S


Kate says: ‘THANK YOU! to the Church for my amazing gift!’ We would welcome a few pounds towards the £200 cost from any of the congregation who wish to contribute. (As agreed by members at our recent meeting.) Please put this in an envelope marked ‘Kate gift’ and place in the offertory basket on Sunday.

Exeter Food bank is running low on stores and needs extra donations in the summer holidays when children don’t get school meals. Please see containers we will put out during July and the poster display in the hall. Most needed are tinned meat, tinned fish and tinned vegetables. (These keep and are suitable for families without good cooking facilities.)

Next Sunday 30th June Roger Anderson is undertaking a sponsored NELLO 60-mile bike ride for Force cancer charity. He will supply sponsor forms for 2 Sundays & 2 Tuesdays when he is back. He is sorry he was not able to do this earlier.

Dates for your diary: July 6th Exhibition & Sale in aid of Exeter Community Initiatives at St Stephen’s Church High St. 10 am – 4 pm.

Next Members’ meeting: 8th July at 7.30 pm.
