My Dear Friends
Four items of church news this month.
- Elsewhere in this Lych Gate you’ll find an advertisement for our Lent Brunch on 10 March at 11.15 am. As you will see, the idea, as well as having a sociable time together, is to raise money for a local charity, the Windsor Homeless Group. If in the self-denying spirit of Lent you come prepared for a simple meal but contribute as though it were a rather splendid one, we should have a useful surplus to pass on. Hope to see you there!

Parish Council elections - An opportunity to contribute to our community
With regular references made in the Lych Gate over the last few months, it has hopefully not escaped your attention that a new Parish Council will be formed in May 2019. There are many organisations that contribute to the upkeep and development of this Parish – for example, the church, the village charities, the school, committees for the village fete and the village show to name but a very few. The Parish Council is one of those organisations.
So what is the Parish Council and what does it do?
Whatever skullduggery might furtively be happening in the tea rooms, bars, meeting rooms and offices within The Palace of Westminster and Portcullis House, we country folk are to have our very own election this year. The Parish Council election will be held in May to continue the valuable good work done by sensible people for the benefit of our lovely parish and community. This edition contains information and guidance that will be of interest to any qualifying resident who might wish to stand for office and join the noble efforts on our behalf.
