News from Upper Welland


At last our gardens are joining others of our neighbours in the village with a late display of Spring flowers.  Grass cutting skilfully avoids the primroses and even cowslips.  We have been witnesses of considerable building projects near and adjacent to the chapel.  We shall be glad when they are finished as workmen have to park their cars somewhere, often in front of the chapel itself.  Thankfully, they do not work on Sundays!

Attendance at our weekly events has fallen considerably during the winter months.  At our excellent Lunch and Get Together in April only one person joined the organisers to enjoy a carefully
planned presentation by Rod Ellis, illustrated with his own photographs of places taken on the Rambler Walking tours which he has led in the past four years.  It was certainly a talk not to be missed.

Numbers were lower, too for the annual Easter Communion and Breakfast led by our minister Rev. Nigel.  He is to be our speaker, too, after our Light Bite Lunch on May 8th 12.45 – 3.30 pm.  The following week we hope to participate in the celebrations on the occasion of the Royal Wedding.  More details later.
