Just a little reminder that the St Andrew's Church 100 Club Renewals are now due. The first draw for a single prize of £50 will be on Christmas Eve Thursday 24th December at 11am in Cromhall village shop. Renew now if you want to be in with a chance of winning an early Christmas bonus! Still only £10 per number for 14 chances to win £50, £30, £20 or £10 prizes but more importantly, an opportunity to support our beautiful and historic parish church in these challenging times when normal fundraising is extremely difficult. The church building and churchyard are still there and still needing to be maintained even though the village and St Andrew's school are not able to use it as we normally would do.
Renewal forms can be downloaded below or simply put your money or cheque in an envelope with your name and contact details and drop into the village shop.
Sincere thanks for your support, Have a wonderful Christmas, Mandy Bird (294186)
Eva Morgan says: "Hi Everyone. I have recently moved to Cromhall with family, we absolutely love it! We have been doing lots of walking and have noticed all the beautiful horses. I love horses and have been lucky to have them in the past but due to work it’s tricky to find the time. I was just making this post to see if anyone can recommend anything? I’m happy to clean and muck out just doing general care. Just love being around them. Thank you.
