Please start collecting goods for sale - John Cripps will be running his very popular (with the children) crockery-smashing stall, but is running out of crockery to smash! If you have any old mugs, plates etc please bring them along and they will be smashed in a good cause and with great enjoyment. And do come and support the fair on Saturday – put it in your diary now!

Prudence the Pig and The Big Shift: Christian Aid are currently encouraging the big banks to divest from fossil fuels. Prudence (a large pig "poster") is part of this. She will be at SAPLC during the summer fair and the following 2 Sundays. We would love church members to write actions and requests for a better world on her. Prudence will spend time at Banner Cross, St Gabriel's and All Saints as well as at SAPLC; and then members of all 4 churches will take her to Barclay's on Banner Cross. More information when Prudence arrives with us!
