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.

First World War Commemoration Service - July 27 2014
July 27 saw the first of the Commemoration and Tribute Services to be held over the
next four years to remember the Fallen Sons of the Great War, 1914 - 1918. The Rev
Gill Smith referred to facts given to her by Potton History Society about men from
Potton who went to war, and of those who didn’t return. Many young men from the town
went away willingly to fight for King and Country only to have their lives cruelly
taken by the enemy. The pictures show the beautiful floral decorations in the Church.
