We   pray   for   those   who   are   ill   at   home,   in   hospitals   or   nursing   homes.   Our   thoughts   and   our   prayers   are   also   with   those   who   lovingly   care   for them   day   by   day:   Phyllis   Harris,   Emlyn   Bawden,   Joan   Dobbs,   Eunice   Miron,   Fr.   Roy   Blewett,   Margaret   Harris,   Barbara   Jones,   Hugh   Stratton   who has been in hospital but home now. *** News from the Lunch Club Thank   you   to   everybody   who   supported   our   coffee   morning   in   November.   We   raised   £330   which   went   towards   our   Christmas   Lunch   when   we   had a   very   enjoyable   afternoon.   Once   again   our   cooks   presented   a   lovely   meal.   The   Dunvant   Rugby   Club   singers   joined   us   to   wait   at   the   tables   then entertained us with our favourite carols. We   also   had   a   £100   donation   from   the   choir   and   £75   from   the   Community   Council   which   we   are   very   grateful   for.   Thank   you   to   all   our   lunch   club members   who   presented   Christine   and   Teressa   with   beautiful   bouquets   of   flowers   and   chocolates   and   also   chocolates   for   the   cooks   and hostesses. We   have   had   a   very   enjoyable   year   with   over   30   members   and   also   a   waiting   list.   I   think   word   must   have   gone   round   what   a   friendly   group   we   are and   what   lovely   meals   we   enjoy   every   week.   We   had   two   outings   -   one   to   the   Botanic   Gardens   in   Carmarthen   and   the   other   a   boat   trip   down   the canal   in   Brecon.   We   still   need   more   helpers,   especially   people   willing   to   help   in   the   kitchen.   We   now   have   four   teams   with   four   cooks   in   each   team but we really need five as it is hard if one is away owing to illness or holidays. Please come along if you don‘t mind peeling potatoes or veg. as it is only every fourth week. Best wishes and a Happy Healthy New Year. Good News Traidcraft have decided to continue. The Traidcraft stall will return on the first Sunday of February (after the Parish lunch is held in January – the stall would have few customers so soon after Christmas). Fair Trade is a way for us to enable people in developing countries to earn a reasonable living, with continuing contracts and a social fund to help whole communities. It ensures that children do not work and can attend school. It is a cause dear to my heart and I look forward to your continued support. Sheila Betts "all take a bow!" firstly thanks to the Coordinators of the Christmas Tree Festival .....Sylvia and Beryl.....supported by.. Val and Gwynneth ...... A very successful and wonderful array of decorated trees....thanks to sponsors, groups, schools and organisations for support! .....thanks also to Coordinator Pam Davies and Gillian Hutchinson, Jim and Jan for another successful 'Mr X' Christmas Appeal,( and to all the contributors ), and to Pam for the Christmas Card Booklet project......."all take a bow!"........ After 6-7 years as Sacristan .....thanks are due to Brian Smale...(who retires due to health matters,) after sterling service preparing for, and during the Eucharist services each week. ( ably supported by Glenda ) ...and to everyone who helped in any way over the Christmas period.......thank you. Mike Powell Parish Vicars Warden
