Priceholme Friends

On the 10th Feb at 2.30 pm  Priceholme Friends Support Group are holding a meeting to look at how we can involve more people in both fundraising and support. Over the years those who began the support group have grown older and for various reasons are no longer able to be involved. Some Methodist churches do not have a representative, which is a shame. We are therefore holding this meeting to explain what Priceholme does, what the Friends Support Group does, and hopefully involve more people. To that end , we would love a representative from every church to come along, see what we do,  and bring your ideas and skills.

It is fine just to come on the day, but if you could e mail me with the name of your church and who / how many are able to come along, that would help with the tea and biscuits.

If you would like to have a look round Priceholme before the meeting, please let Ruth Dale know In addition, if you would like a speaker to come to your church / group and talk about Priceholme, please let me know and I will pass on your details.

Sensations of a Wound

depicts the story of a Yorkshire soldier caught up in the First World War.

Robert Riby Boyes’ First World War experience took him a long way from home. He travelled from Scarborough to the Western Front in France; from the Battle of Passchendaele in Belgium to a cattle truck in the South of France; from the mountains of Italy in winter to the Front in Northern France and further still.

Jim Boyes, a member of critically acclaimed a cappella trio Coope Boyes and Simpson, is Robert’s grandson. He remembers how his grandfather, who was known as ‘Croppie’ in the family, never talked about his wartime experiences.

It was only when Jim began writing songs and researching First World War history that a fuller picture of his grandfather’s past emerged. While preparing for a performance for Flemish organisation Peace Concerts Passendale, Jim discovered the long journey of Private Boyes of the 23rd Middlesex regiment.

Bringing together ‘Croppie’ Boyes’ first-hand accounts, Jim Boyes’ original songs and Belinda O’Hooley’s subtle piano accompaniments, Sensations of a Wound tells the story of a young soldier who travelled far from home.

7.30pm. February 21st Westborough Methodist Church

ECG in Scarborough

ECG will be in Scarborough from 7-12th April

www.ecgevent.org.uk/the-event

ECG are looking for ways that they can give practical help as a mission outreach, as they did on Barrowcliffepreviously.

They are looking for either 3 small projects for the afternoons of wed- fri or one project for 3 afternoons- could be at more than one venue. Maybe of 2-3 hour session. If its possible for the projects to be in walking distance of the Spa that would be helpful. Teams of no more than 15 -20 people could attend. The projects must be manageable and not need skilled professionals in attendance eg- fence painting, gardening etc.  Inside or outside projects would be satisfactory.

Please e-mail me if your church or project would like help

Thanks, Ruth Dale (ruth.dale8@gmail.com)
