In order to keep those who are interested in touch we have set up a emailing list
so that we can remind people of events and let them know if there is anything special
going on. We did not take email addresses from members of the congregation on the
day, but it will be helpful if you could complete the list at the back of the church,
or email us if you would like to be included on this list.
How does it work?
For every book you bring along you can take a book away to read. If you don’t have
a book to bring along you can still borrow one to get you started in return for a
small donation. We will also have refreshments - tea, coffee etc - so you can sit
and have a chat with old or new friends. There will be a children’s area with toys
to keep them amused so you can relax.
Sunday Bookswap and Table Top Sale
The Ultimate Recycling Experience
For many years we have had regular bring and buy sales in aid of local charities
offering pre-loved items at reasonable prices. Starting in October 2017, this will
be on the 4th Sunday of every month and will be combined with a new, extra Sunday
opening time for Bookswap so that those of you who can’t come on a Thursday afternoon
can still take part. Light refreshments will be available.
Sunday 24th February
Times: Between 10.30am and 12.30pm
Place: In the church hall (behind the church)
Our current charity is The Red Box Project.
The Red Box Project in Watford is our next Sales Table charity
The first project was set up in March 2017 in Portsmouth and the movement has spread
rapidly nationwide as schools welcome the response to the problem of girls missing
out on their education because their families struggle financially and cannot afford
to provide sanitary products. Red boxes in schools are kept stocked by the Red Box
volunteers and improved attendances have been reported as a result. The local project
is working with partners such as the police, local councillors and Watford Community
Please support young people's education by visiting the Sales Table!
Our next event will be on 24thFebruary. We were able to send £150 to the Watford
Talking Newspaper recently from the Sales Table proceeds. Your generosity is appreciated!
