Our next popular Sunday Parish Lunch after will take place 12.15 for 12.30 on Sunday, 4th September at Blackmoor Golf Club. It will be a carvery as before and the cost remains at £14.00 for the carvery and £5.00 for a pudding; this includes coffee/tea. The carvery will take place on the last Sunday of every month, which will make it easier from a planning point of view. The lunch is open to everyone, but has to be pre-booked through me.

After weeks of preparation the day finally arrived. All Saints Church were kicking off the Jubilee weekend – what an honour.
On the Thursday evening people arrived at the Church Centre with tables, chairs, cool boxes, and blankets – the sun blasted us with warmth, a perfect start. The good folk of Headley rose to the occasion and the Temperance Quartet played giving the evening an air of times gone by when people gathered to enjoy each other’s company with ease.
There was laughter, fun and food. The bar was doing a roaring trade all evening and the hog roast man was rushed off his feet. At 9.40pm, as per instruction from Buckingham Palace, the band stopped and a lone piper started playing from the church tower the piece of music written especially for the Queen, with a beautiful sunset behind him. At 9.45pm the official beacon was lit, along with other beacons up and down the country. The piper played on, the beacon burned – and the crowd gathered below started to sing the National Anthem.
As people drifted away, having celebrated something that will probably never happen again, and having met up with friends they hadn’t seen for a while, you could hear the laughter and feel the excitement of a weekend of joyous celebration ahead.
All Saints, you did the village proud. Thank you, and all who came along, waved your flags and had such a good time.
