The Bike 'n Hike raises money through sponsorship and, by taking part, half the money you raise will go to the church or your choice and the other half will go to the Beds and Herts Historic Churches Trust to offer grants for church repair projects. Donations can be made through their Just Giving page. 
 

Would We Lie to You? - Saturday 12 October

St Andrew’s Clergy and Readers have accepted the challenge of providing the two teams in what will be an entertaining evening based on the popular TV gameshow Would I Lie to You?! The event is planned for Saturday 12 October. Churchwardens Sue and Jane Cohen will take the chair and act as scorer respectively. In addition to the entertainment, with plenty of audience participation, there will be a hot supper and licensed bar. If you are interested in helping in any way with the event, please contact Hazel & Peter Risby (01438 747754). To decide on the venue Hazel & Peter want to assess the potential audience, so please let them know if you plan to attend or put your name on the sign-up sheet in church.
