Bingham Methodist Church Scarecrow Project for Harvest Festival

Bingham Methodist Church Scarecrow Project for Harvest Festival

Bingham Methodist Church is planning a fun scarecrow project for the last harvest festival in the old church building before it is demolished to make way for a new church and community centre. They are encouraging anyone in the local community to make a scarecrow of any size from a small table top creation to a full size design for a harvest festival display. The scarecrows can be wall mounted or free standing and made of any material from card to straw. Lynn Mellors who is organising the scarecrow project said: “This would be a good project for families to do together over the summer holidays. We plan to display all the scarecrows and would like to see as many people take part as possible to celebrate our last ever harvest festival in the church.” Scarecrows should be delivered to the church by Thursday 25th September to be included in the display. They can be brought along to the Lively Spirits playgroup on Mondays during term time 10am-12noon or the Thursday and Saturday coffee mornings 10am-12noon as well as Sunday services at 10.30am. Harvest Festival service will be held at the church on Sunday 28th September at 10.30am and all are welcome to attend. There will be a collection of tinned and packet groceries and household goods during the service which will be donated to the homeless charity Framework. More information about the Bingham Methodist Church and the new building project can be found on their...
Bingham Model Railway Club & It’s Australian Connections

Bingham Model Railway Club & It’s Australian Connections

In the past, Bingham Model Railway Club recruited a Member, Alecs Porock, from Perth Australia, who then lived in Radcliffe until he moved to America. Not long after Alecs left, we recruited yet another former member of Perth Model Railway Club Barrie Keens. Barrie asked for Alecs’s contact details because he had lost touch! The latest Aussie to visit us August 5th was Phil Jeffery with his wife Shirley. It seems unlikely that he will also move from Melbourne in OZ to join us because he has an active life with the Australian Victorian Model Railway Society. If anyone else wants to visit us to see what we do, contact Graham as below. Graham Dean, 01949...
