Christmas Wishes From Debbie & Tony

Dear Bielby friends,

In light of the difficult Christmas we had as a family last year and the wonderful care our daughter Molly received at the Royal Worcester ICU, this year we are making a donation to Crohns and Colitis UK  instead of sending cards.

We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very happy 2020.
Best Wishes Debbie, Tony and family

Carol Singing Thanks

We collected £318.81 carol singing round the village on Wednesday evening. I would like to say a huge thanks to all the people who gave very generously and the singers who were in fine voice on such a horrible wet and cold evening.
The money raised will go to York Against Cancer which I am sure you will agree is a very worthwhile cause. Thanks again and have a great Christmas and New Year.

Training In First Aid/Defibrillator

At the last village meeting we discussed some training in first aid/defibrillator which is free. We can hold this in the church but we need to get enough people interested for the trainers to give up their time. The training is about 1 hour. Please let me know ASAP if you would be interested in this. We need at least 12 people.
