TALENT COMPETITION: Back in June £200 was raised for Water Aid through a Wartling’s Got Talent event. Performers, William, Noa, Ben, Leon and Daisy as well as Alan Hassell for sponsoring the piano, are all offered many thanks for their part in this classical music concert. Thanks also to the band of talented resident artists – Kevin, Andrzej and Emma. It was a lovely evening.

FREE CHURCH: Last month’s breakfast club was relaxed and enjoyable as always. Over the past few months, the children have been enjoying a story time based around Pilgrim’s Progress and making different pieces of equipment such as swords, shields, crowns and telescopes. This month the story time came to an end and involved a perseverance race. For this pasta and straw race, the children had to carry all their equipment. They were all very good sports and kept going to the end.

Also in July, the Youth Club hosted their end of term barbecue. The young people and their families enjoyed burgers and sausages followed by assorted sweet treats and fruit. Also joining them were friends from church who agreed it was a lovely evening. Youth Club will be meeting again on 15 September and currently has spaces to join, so young people aged 11 – 16 years are invited to come along on Fridays during term time at 7.30 – 9pm.
