This, the 27th annual Puzzle that Gordon Gray has set, has a theme designed to help completion and will appeal to people who enjoy doing crossword puzzles, such as in the Daily Telegraph (though it is not a crossword puzzle). Puzzlers have plenty of time to find the answers and Puzzles should be returned, with donation, by 28 January 2018.
To download a copy of the Puzzle go to www.christmaspuzzle.co.uk. Alternatively puzzles can be collected from St Mary's Eaton Bray.
All the money you donate, except for the prize-money, will go to charity.
At this time of year we commemorate those family members and loved ones who have passed away.
At St Mary's we will hold a service starting at 3pm on Sunday 5th November. Do come along or, if you can't mange to get there please add the names of your loved ones to the list on the bookshelves and we will ensure that they are remembered in our prayers.

Your toilet twin is part of a chain reaction that changes lives forever – as Kanchana's story proves.
Thanks to your support, Kanchana* has helped bring toilets to every home in her village! Before our work began, Kanchana and the other women had to go to the toilet outside - in the dark. Culture dictates that women cannot be seen squatting in the bushes. Disease was rife. Then our local partner organisation, Sacha, invited the women to come together to discuss the village's problems. Kanchana took it upon herself to ensure everyone attended. It wasn't long before the men got involved too. Kanchana and her husband were the first to build a toilet. Then they helped their neighbours. Now, every house in the village has a latrine and Kanchana's community is widely known for its cleanliness. I'm proud I helped make my village open defecation-free and clean', says Kanchana. 'My husband and father-in-law admire my self-confidence and boldness now!'
