A concert was held in St. Mary's on 14th September 2019, in aid of both the Guide Dogs and Hearing Dogs. June Atkinson has just received word from the  that the money we raised (about £400) has been used to enable Richard to have a new HD, after Dillon, his beloved companion, died. It has taken all this time to raise the necessary funding, which is about £5,000 + to breed and train a Rodney for Richard. Here is the wonderful, heartwarming link of the story.

 

The Church of England has now produced some specific Covid-19 resources to support parishes and individuals.

In these very uncertain times we are extremely grateful to those who continue to give so sacrificially to the Parish. If anyone who normally gives their offering by the plate (envelope or cash) would like to pay directly through their bank, our Treasurer Clive Jordan, would be pleased to advise. He can be contacted via e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or telephone 01661 598005.  Please otherwise continue to utilise your weekly envelope and put to one side for the happy day when we return to normal.

On a personal note I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your continued support, generosity and loyalty to our parish and community. Please be assured of my prayers.

Reverend Paul T Allinson. Vicar of Ponteland
