St Helen’s and St Peter’s Golf Day
A total of 35 people enjoyed the St Helen’s and St Peter’s golf day at Mid Herts golf club last Friday.  There were 21 golfers with handicaps ranging between 12 and 48 who played either 9 or 18 holes, while 28 gathered for a splendid post-game dinner.  The winners of the Debenhams Ottaway Claret Jug were David Hartley, one of our churchwardens, and a new resident in the village, David Hilton.  Debenhams Ottaway partner Andrew Yates and David Hilton (again) were runners-up on countback.  The 9 hole singles competition was won by Paul Dyson, with Cathy Honey as runner-up.

St Albans Diocese is looking for someone with experience in project planning, managing and monitoring, as well as a proven track record of writing and delivering successful complex funding bids. A full job pack and details of how to apply are available on their website.  The closing date for applications is 13 September 2023.

The Memorial Service for the late Mrs Phyllis Mitchell will be held at 1pm Monday 4th September. All are welcome to stay for the reception in the chancel after the memorial service.
