COFFEE-ON-WHEELS FIVE’! – A ‘BRING AND BUY’ COFFEE MORNING on 20th  October at Homeway was a very convivial and profitable morning. The Coffee flowed and there was an extensive array of Cakes, Pastries and Biscuits. As billed ‘.... Drink as much Coffee (or Tea) as you like; Eat as many cakes as you like – (no one will be counting!)’. No one did, or at least audibly! The ‘Bring and Buy’ Table was expansive in length and content. Like a well-stocked Christmass Bazaar Stall – and some folk did do some Christmass Shopping. The Raffle Prizes were splendid. Star Prizes were Marks and Spencer and Wyevale Garden Centre Vouchers, both to the value of £25.00p and A Jewellery Wardrobe!

We sold 45 tickets and made £478.50p (2017: £517.80p, 2016: £528.20p, 2015: £414.10p and 2014: £380.35p) (including Sales’ Table: £143.50p, Raffle: £90.00p and Donations: £20.00p) for Church Funds. (No expenses were claimed!). The proceeds have been ‘sent-off’ to pay the ever-increasing Parish’s Family Purse.

Our Sincere Thanks go to Mr. Gary and Mrs. Angela Piggott and Mrs. Pauline Wenn for opening their home to us with such warm and generous hospitality and to Number One Son, Matthew Piggott for doing the ‘washing-up’ and his wife Gemma-Louise for her attentive waitressing; Number Two Son, Alexander Piggott for manning the Sales’ Table in the garden! We are most grateful to those who supported us, especially the members of All Saints, Squirrels Heath (Ardleigh Green) Mid-Week Fellowship and Our Host’s and Hostesses’ Neighbours (it was encouraging to see some ‘New Faces’) and to those who provided transport to and from this ‘out-of-parish’ venue. Peak-caps are awaited!!

The ‘Coffee-On-Wheels’! hosts have offered to provide this ‘Bring and Buy’ Coffee Morning annually, which has been accepted with alacrity by Our Parish Priest and Honorary Treasurer. See you in Homeway in 2019!
