With the ending of lockdown, August was back to some normality with a well-attended AGM of the Residents Association on the 11th and an energetic working party on Saturday 14th. Thanks to the 21 people who joined the working party who worked for a solid 3 hours on the village tidy up and transformed the churchyard from jungle to tidy state.
Food Banks-A recent article in the Guardian newspaper highlighted High Wycombe as the number one hotspot in England for hunger and food insecurity. Our food donations go to the Lane End Community Matters Food Bank. Their recent message “To all at Cadmore End. What a huge amount of donations you gave today, we cannot thank you enough for your generosity. Lucy Smith and I (Barbara) saw 8 Lane End families today, all with food needs and long stories about their lives at this time. Some of the stories are heart-breaking. We will see another 3 families tomorrow. We are desperately trying to get more food from other churches and local businesses.”
For the time being Community Matters have requested (due to food supply problems) we deliver to them fortnightly on 1st and 3rd Friday so for September only we will continue to collect weekly and on the 2nd and 4th Friday deliver to the One Can Trust in High Wycombe.
So if you can donate, please put weekly food donations in the church porch every Thursday and up to 10.00am on Friday when we take it to the food bank.
