Church service at St Mary Magdalene, Cottingham, 10am

Join Rev Amanda Oliver at St Mary’s for a 30 minute service to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Everyone welcome.

St Mary Magdalene Church will be decorated and open from 10am to 5pm over the Jubilee weekend (from Thur 2 to Sun 5 June). Cottingham schoolchildren will be creating some decorations, and villagers are being invited to adopt a window or area of church for decoration in the Jubilee colours of red, white and blue. As it’s nearly time for bedding plants, how about buying some red and white geraniums, then you can take them home to plant afterwards? Any kind of arrangement is fine though, all we really need is your imagination! If you’d like to get involved, please contact Angela Preston-Jones on 772297, email p.j55@btinternet.com, or call Mary Freestone on 771339.
