New Church Boiler

Everyone at St Leonard’s would like to thank all those who helped to make the recent Flower festival such a success. As a result of your generosity, the church has been able to pay for the recently installed boiler which has replaced the old, worn out one, so the church will be warmer over winter.

New Vicar

Our new vicar, Rev’d Zoe Ferguson will lead her first services on July 10th. Zoe’s licensing service will be at St Leonard’s on July 7th. Please note that all tickets have been allocated.

Please note the change in start time from 10am to 9.30am, for the St Leonard’s and joint services from that date.

Church boiler – help needed

St Leonard’s Church has an oil fired boiler which is in a poor condition and needs to be replaced this year. It is the sole source of heat in the building and its replacement is vital if we are to maintain a warm welcome for regular worshippers and visitors alike. This will result in a significant challenge to church finances in 2016, So we would be very grateful for any financial assistance.

If you are able to hep, please send your donation to the church treasurer; Peter Dennis, 2 Swaffham Road, Mundford, Thetford, IP26 5EH, tel. 01842 878562 or email. Cheques should be made payable to Mundford PCC.

Very many thanks to you all.

WW1 Anniversary Event

St Leonard’s Church held an event to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. The organising committee would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who visited the Church to see the display. They also thank all the people who worked so hard to produce the displays and collect the memorabilia and to those who lent treasured family mementoes. Especial thanks go to:

  • Nick Tucker for his work on tracing those listed on the local War Memorials
  • Rosemary Godfrey for her display of her grandfather’s diary A Signallers War (for sale in aid of the Royal British Legion)
  • Ken and Anita Nockolds for their donation of 10 copies of The Trench with a foreword by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo (sold out)
  • Eddie Allen for his Royal British Legion display and the honour of the loan of their flag

And the fundraising team for pulling it all together, manning the church and serving tea and coffee throughout the five days.

Finally to all those who continue to support all the Charities connected to the Remembrance of those who didn’t come home and those severely affected or disabled by the continuing conflict throughout the World.

We will remember them.
