INTERCESSIONS BOARD We now have a board in St Michael & St Wulfad’s that is generously given for our prayers. The idea is that the long term sick will have their names placed there to be remembered with every candle and every prayer. Once each month at each service all names that are there will be read out in prayers; the names on the pewsheet will then by the short term sick or those in hospitals. If you would like to add a name or topic to be remembered there are “flame” shaped cards available by the candle stand

Stir up Sunday again – name taken from the Post Communion Collect of course, though also taken to remind generations of Mums and housewives that it is time to make the Christmas puddings!

            As I write, Stone’s Food and Drink Festival has just been completed for another year – and what a magnificent weekend it was this year! Spurred on by some unseasonably warm and dry weather, the numbers in town seemed to exceed all expectations! I know that one year at least 22,000 were expected to have visited – and I would be surprised if records were not broken this year

            “Remember, remember The 5th of November” runs the old rhyme, but of course this is a relatively late tradition. In 1605 Guy Fawkes and other Roman Catholics were discovered trying to blow up King James I in the Houses of Parliament; Their subsequent trial and execution is remembered each year in our Bonfire Night. At the time it was a “No-popery” celebration, though I doubt that many will remember that as the rockets ascend this year
