Thursday Market – The Thursday market has been running for many years. However the number of helpers and stall holders is decreasing, making it difficult to continue. Mary Chapman who runs the market is keen to recruit new stall holders and general helpers to run existing stalls. If you think you can help please contact Mary at the market on any Thursday morning or speak to Tony Rice-Oxley.

Work Morning – Just a reminder that it is the joint George’s Men and Ladies working party morning, this Friday 24th March, starting at 9am for 2 or 3 hours. Please bring garden tools and cleaning supplies as we will do some work both inside and out of the church.

Friday coffee mornings

We are sorry to announce that the Friday coffee mornings at St George’s Church Hall are to be discontinued for the time being. This means that the coffee morning on Friday 23rd December will be the last one.

Rapidly rising costs, especially for heating of the hall, has led to this decision.

The decision to close will be kept under review and we may be able to revive the coffee mornings at some future date, especially when the warmer weather comes and we do not need to heat the hall.

The coffee morning on Wednesday will continue unaffected. Morning teas and coffees will continue to be available every Thursday at St George’s Market.

St George’s Market ss closed for the Christmas break and reopens on Thursday 19th January.

Scams and Tricksters - We have been warned by the Diocese that Churches and their congregations are being targeted by fraudsters, so please be alert. The latest scam is an email, purportedly from the Vicar or some other trusted Church Official, asking the recipient to contribute to a secret and discreet gift collection for a church member by purchasing Amazon Vouchers, and sending the voucher codes in reply.

Any church fundraising activity will have appeared in the Sunday Bulletin, you can view both current and past copies on the church website HERE.

There are people who have lost huge sums of money by being scammed by someone purporting to be the Police, or from a Bank, saying perhaps that an account has been compromised and persuading the withdrawal of cash or transfer of funds to another account. Never withdraw cash or transfer money on instructions of any ‘Officials’ or your Bank. They will be fraudsters who are persuasive and creating a sense of urgency. Remember you have done nothing to cause an account to be comprised, so it is the Bank’s problem not yours! So stop, allow time for some calm thought, and before doing anything contact us for advice.

There have been scam emails going around purportedly from NHS about COVID vaccinations and vaccination status. You will never be asked to pay for a vaccine or to establish your vaccination status. The NHS will never ask for Bank or Card details, PIN numbers or passwords, or for documents to prove your identity.

Never expose bank or credit card details in response to an email or on the telephone to anyone who has called you, and be suspicious if they suggest you call back - you can still get caught out. Under no circumstances ever give your PIN number to anyone else - even to your bank. Never open an email attachment from an unexpected, suspicious or unknown source.

If in any doubt forward emails, or describe and detail any other approaches (e.g., by telephone/text) to: webmaster@stgeorges.church  and we will advise if it is a scam. Do this before doing anything else!
