News Archive - June 2014
St Mary's has stood in the village for almost 800 years and, throughout its history, it has not been equipped with that most basic of facilities, a toilet.
This has meant that some elderly folk have been unable to risk coming to church, visitors for funerals and weddings have been uncomfortable throughout services and, rather unsatisfactorily, children have been instructed to 'go behind a gravestone'. 2014 should see that situation remedied with the construction of an extension to house a new toilet.
To help fund the toilet we have started a 100 Club, featuring monthly draws of 50% of the received income. For just £2 per number per month you could help St Mary's get this much needed facility and put yourself in with a chance of winning a first prize each month of over £50.
This month's draw was made by Coralie McCluskey, Kay Griffiths, and Will Griffiths at the "Open Gardens 2014" reception. Many thanks to those who allowed us to see how their hard work over the year(s) has paid off!
If you were unable to visit on the day, or would like to rekindle the memories, then please visit: www.StMarysEatonBray.org.uk/Events/Open-Gardens/2014/
At the time of the draw the 100 Club had 120 members, so the three winners share a prize money pot of £120.
Congratulations to the winners of our June draw:
Winner of £60 – #52, Rachel McVeigh
Winner of £36 – #41, Gordon Gray
Winner of £24 – #113, Alan Brook
If you would like to help us by joining the 100 Club please collect a form from St Mary's Church, Eaton Bray, or from www.StMarysEatonBray.org.uk/100-Club
