Hampden Park

St Marys is celebrating:·St Marys, Decoy Drive has just had its first makeover since it was rebuilt in 1953 with new paint inside and refurbished floors. It all looks very wonderful. The renovation of the floor in the Community Hall was assisted by a donation from the Councillors discretionary fund for which the church is very grateful.

To celebrate all this , the parish is having a Parish Fest on May Day – Sunday May 1st at the church. There will be a Celebration Service at 10.30am for families, local organisations and users of the hall.

The very many families who had marriages and baptisms there over the last few years are also going to be invited.

Scouts , guides, cubs and beavers who are not away camping over the Bank holiday weekend are especially welcome.

The short service will be followed by a party with a free barbeque, a bouncy castle, stalls and exhibitions a Maypole etc all ending with a concert in the church by the Robin Post Singers at 4.0pm .

The Deputy Mayor Cllr Jim Murray will be attending. .
