Hello Everyone,

<div>What a lovely day it has been today- the sunshine has been out and it is warming up. The gardens are shooting forth in flower and weed and folks in Toddington are busy preparing for the Open Gardens later this month. The sporting summer is in full swing with some wonderful tennis at Wimbledon and football at Wembley this week with some amazing new talent. Nigel has been enjoying cricket and as I type, England footballers are playing hard in an important game in Rome. </div><div>

<div>Please hold our wedding couple in your prayers this week: Sue and Neil are marrying on 10th July at Chalgrave.</div><div>
</div><div>It is a delight to be meeting with baptism families again to plan baptisms. Do get in touch with me or Nigel if you would like to discuss a baptism.</div><div>
</div><div>We are looking ahead to plan some different courses and opportunities for the new season. More information to follow.</div>

We are looking to develop our list of volunteers to help in maintaining the grounds of this beautiful church, and to help with cleaning inside the church, plus flower arrangers to help decorate the church.  If you have time or skills to offer, please contact Linda or Sandy. We will be delighted to hear from you.

<div>Please stay safe. The local infection rates are rising here as they are across the country. We are so grateful for opportunities to meet and to share time together but let us all do this safely.</div><div>
</div><div>We send you our very good wishes and look forward to seeing you all soon.</div><div>
</div><div>God bless</div><div>
