Message from Philippa Baker
Philippa sends heartfelt thanks to everyone who is helping them through this difficult time. So many kind people are involved with providing lifts and delicious meals, doing laundry and many other things. As a family, they are also aware of the amount of prayer which is being offered up on their behalf.  She, Andrew and the boys are grateful to a degree it is hard to express in words.  Thank you all so very much.

SECRETT'S FARM TOUR: Thursday 1st June, 4.00pm
Charles Secrett has kindly offered the local community the opportunity to go behind the scenes of his Hurst Farm site in Milford and see what's growing. It should be a very interesting tour; the farm not only supplies their own farm shop and PYO but also top restaurants in London, and Charles will no doubt be an entertaining host! The tour is primarily aimed at adults, but if older children would find it of interest they are very welcome to accompany their parents. There'll be refreshments and a treat to bring home included afterwards. The whole event has been generously offered free of charge but you must book to reserve a place. Please contact: Cathy Brook

A perfect summers evening…

The evenings are getting lighter, the sun is promising to shine and Godalming is starting to look its glorious best! Only a month to go and tickets are still available for this simply lovely event...enjoy a relaxing evening of opera, the joyful strains of jazz and classics from the West End and Gilbert & Sullivan at Midsummer Music at Malthouse Farm.

Have you collected yours yet?
There are still copies of the Bridge to be collected from the back of Busbridge Church, plus a collection of various plates and containers from some recent events - if these are yours, please collect them sooner rather than later as we like a tidy looking church, especially with all the summer weddings coming up. Thank you!

Hambledon - A Celebration in Flowers!
Two years ago our first ‘celebration’ was a huge success, with floral contributions from the pub, shop, nursery school, cricket and football clubs…and even the Rector! Come along to Hambledon Church on the 10th or 11th June to enjoy this year’s displays – delicious cream teas will be served between 10.00am-6.00pm on the Saturday (so you could come along after Spring Cleaning at Busbridge!) and midday-6.00pm on the Sunday.
