St Mary’s Church, Potton, is proud to support the work of St John’s Care Hospice at Moggerhanger by allowing a monthly Parish Lunch to be held in the Church Hall free of charge to the lunch organisers. This is usually at 12-45 on the last Friday of each month and raises, on average, £3000 a year for the Hospice by providing a range of delicious Home Cooked Lunches to about 60 people, all for a very modest charge. If you haven’t been to one of these lunches and want to know more about it or would like to help, please contact Dave Thompson.

The Listening Place - Important Enjoy a cup of Coffee, Cake or a biscuit, and a Chat. This has been the Motto of the listening Place since it was started by Rev Jan Bunday some time ago to help the lonely or bereaved by Talking to them. As numbers have dropped right off, it has been decided to close the group and the last session will be on December 17 at Jakes Court, starting at 10.00. Anyone who has previously come for any reason, is invited to join us on the final morning.
A new monthly event will start in the New Year.
