Saturday 7 October

Your beautiful baking is a winner when each year our stall is a total sell out. When combined with the Eastbourne Red Cross branch in 2016 we successfully raised $1000 in 3 hours!

Our St Ronan’s Springtime Bake Stall is on Saturday 7th October on Rimu Street in front of Sorrento, 8:30 am to 1:00 pm.

Our projects this year are Randwick School Bicycles for a Class project and the Hutt Valley Red Cross refugees.

Would you please be willing to make one or preferably two items of your favourite baking recipes? A name sheet asking for a wee bit of help for an hour, especially pricing first thing, is being circulated at Sunday morning tea. It is a very sociable time! We are looking forward to continuing our successful event knowing that what we are doing is making a difference to others, all thanks to your concern and efforts.

The Eastbourne Winter Series

St Ronan's biennial Eastbourne Winter Series lectures ran during July and August. The theme was Pre-election thinking – hopes and possibilities

Four topics were addressed, beginning with what freshwater standards we should aspire to on July 9, education and whether it is nurturing the right values among young people on July 23, the elimination of nuclear weapons and the struggle for peace on August 6, and, finally, how to protect and encourage high-quality, public-service media on August 20.

Ride to church: A few months ago Sandy offered to organise a lift to church for anyone needing it. That invitation is renewed now. Maybe there’s someone needing a ride, but not asking for one? Perhaps you might dob them in. Give Sandy a call on 562 8753 or email slang@xtra.co.nz if you know someone who might need a ride.
