 Things are moving on various fronts at Tong

Building Matters

By the time of publication, we will have signed the contract for the next tranche of work on the roof and the vestry and two windows in the chancel, so scaffolding will again be going up, and there will be a tunnel from the chancel door to the vestry. Of course, due to the scaffolding being in place the security system will also be enhanced to meet our insurance requirements.

The Organ will also shortly be dismantled for repair and refurbishment. So, it means our Christmas celebrations will look a little different from usual, but we are going to carry on with all our plans including a Christmas Tree Festival which will run from Friday 7th - Sunday 9th December and a Christmas Fayre on the morning of Saturday 8th IN CHURCH from 10 - 1.00 with stalls, refreshments, bulbs, tombola, Christmas cards.

If you would like to run a stall or contribute, we would love to hear from you, and especially gifts for the Children’s “Lucky Dip” would be much appreciated.

Also, the stall holder selling laser cutting items at the bank holiday event is coming to the fayre with Christmas decorations to sell.

The whole weekend will culminate with our Carol Service at 6.30 on Sunday 9th to which everybody is welcome, surrounded by the decorated Christmas Trees.

If you or anybody you know would like to sponsor and decorate a tree to advertise their business or service, please get in touch.

Tong Tours on Saturdays

During the summer there has been a tour of the church at 2.00 pm on the first Saturday of each month for which we have charge £5 per head and provided tea/coffee. There has been a smattering of visitors each time including one time the local MP who was kind enough to include it on Twitter. As the church is cold in the winter months, the last of these tours was in October and we will then evaluate whether to do it again next summer. The plus is that it enables people just to turn up rather than book ahead. If you have any feedback or questions, do email us via Pippa on pippa.thorneycroft@icloud.com

Remembrance Book

There is a Remembrance book in Tong Church. If anyone would like to have the name of a departed loved one, who had a connection with Tong, entered into the book please contact Anne Sadler on 01902 374438.
