I'm taking this opportunity to congratulate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and send our very best wishes on the birth of a royal princess, at the time of writing, as yet unnamed.
What's been going on with the social Committee? Well, we did the refreshments for the Carols by Candlelight Service; support for the various Friends of Holy Trinity events with the refreshments; organised a leaving do for Zoe our re-ordering campaign manager when she left. It was a cheese and wine evening, with a talk by Roger Lea on the history of Holy Trinity. It was a very interesting and enjoyable evening, it ended with an update on the reordering project (over £900,000 towards our £1,600,00 target so far) and a light hearted look to the future of the church by Mike Somers.
We continue to support the Friends of Holy Trinity event for the Birmingham Icknield Male Voice Choir are on Saturday 16th May . Back to the Royal birth, we are planning to hold a 'Bring & Share' lunch to celebrate the occasion. We are proposing to hold it on Pentecost, Sunday 24th May, so a double celebration, but that may change because it is also the start of the spring bank holiday week so a number of the congregation will be away.
We will also do a 'Big Breakfast' event and a Quiz later on, along with some other events, watch this space.
The social committee is very social’ and if anyone would like to join it, new members would be welcome, along with any ideas.
