Nativity and Gift Service at St Nicholas
All Age Nativity and Gift Service on Sunday 11th December at 10am.
This year we are hoping once again to provide gifts for the women and children in Aylesbury Women’s refuge.
The refuge provides a safe place for up to 14 women and 17 children. At present, the oldest child is a girl of 12 years old. There are also two babies in residence with their mothers.
Please think of some treats for the women as well as toys and gifts for the children. Wrapping paper and sellotape are also very welcome, but please leave your gifts unwrapped when you bring them to the service. These gifts let people who are going through a hard time know that they are thought about and cared for. Let us share God’s love.
Thank you for your support.

Autumn Colour in the Chilterns
There are lovely views and colours in the Chilterns at the moment as the leaves on the beech trees turn gold - especially in the setting sunlight.
Do go and enjoy.
Alan and Stella
An audience of nearly 100 filled St Nicholas’ church on Saturday evening for an enthralling concert in memory of Myles Saker.
Danae Eleni (Soprano), Sam Baker (Piano) and Sandy Mackenzie (‘Cello) gave the audience a wonderful evening of music ranging from Purcell via Benjamin Britten and ending with Lerner and Loewe!
Nigel Philipps gave some poetry readings in memory of Myles either side of the interval and the whole evening raised a significant sum of money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
A fuller report will be given in December’s Village Voice.

New River Thame Website
There is now a fabulous, interactive website for the River Thame – do visit riverthame.org
We are finding out lots about our river and its wildlife and keeping a check on water quality and habitats. If you would like to get involved, there is a link on the web site.
School Harvest Thanksgiving Service
Both Infant and Junior site children filled St Nicholas' Church this morning, 10th October, for a Harvest Thanksgiving Service.
There was a wonderful array of gifts presented by the children (see picture) which would be sent to Aylesbury Vineyard for distribution to needy famlies and individuals.
School Helper and Parent Jo Goodson led the service and focused her message to the children on giving and sharing – particularly food and water. She used the reference to water to introduce us all to the Toilet Twinning project that Nic Nacs have been involved in. Look out in Village Voice for further information on this next month!
There was lots of enthusiastic singing of songs about food and giving!
