Gerald Raymond Smith
1943 – 2020

Chris, Claire and all the family wish to thank you all for your cards, messages of condolence and flowers during this sad time. They have all been overwhelmed with the love and prayers they are receiving.
Due to the current restrictions on numbers and social distancing, Gerald’s Funeral Service, on Friday 24th July, will be by invitation only.
However, a Mass of Thanksgiving for Gerald’s life will be held as soon as we are able.
Donations in Memory of Gerald are welcome. These will go towards refurbishment of the coffee bar/ area in church. Cheques made payable to St Chad’s PCC. Donation ‘Gift Aid’ envelopes for this are available at the back of church or from one of the wardens.


LOCKDOWN COMPETITION TIME
‘Calling anyone who has been tempted into
taking a few photos during lockdown – and
if you haven’t done so already, now is the
time to get your phones and cameras out
and start snapping! We are having a
St Chad’s Lockdown Calendar
Photo Competition.
Entry will be £1 for each photo submitted.
All photos will be used in a special display in
church to remind us of these strange times
and the 12 best pics will be selected to
create a 2021 calendar which will be
available on sale later this year.
There will also be an overall winner’.
Please email your photos to the
churchwarden’s email address in jpeg
format. Kaye will be overseeing this project
and has arranged an independent
adjudicator !
