St John’s Church, Ryhall – Feb 2022

Winners of the December 50Plus Draw 

1st Prize £103-50 – number 67 – Shaun Rolfe. 
2nd Prize £51-75 – number 18 – Win Peck. 
3rd Prize £17-25 – number 33 – Chris Hayes. 

With three weeks to Christmas, Betty Edwards decided there was just about enough time to put the annual Christmas hamper together. 

She put a pad on the church table asking if people would donate any of the listed items, This resulted in a huge hamper and four extra prizes. 

She then sold tickets at £1 each which resulted in £226 being donated to church funds. 

When the winner of the hamper was announced as David Harrison there was a huge round of applause. 

The winners of the four additional prizes were:- John Hastings, Rina Waters, Win Peck and Sandra and Simon Chapman. 

Andrew from Foresters Cottages kindly loaned his wheelbarrow to transport the hamper which was too heavy to carry! 

The draw took place at the end of the very pleasant carol service on 19th December with everyone wearing masks to keep us all as safe as possible. 

The new calendar is in place on the table inside the church so please enter your name if you would like to place flowers on a special date in your life. Flowers can be placed on the table or on the altar to make the church look beautiful 

Thank you, Betty E
