Tax Reclaim and giving
Childswickham church was able to reclaim tax in excess of £2000 for the year 2014.
This was made up of a claim on tracked giving with regular envelopes and standing
orders and a claim for cash donations to a ‘community building’ ie the church. The
latter is a government allowed tax reclaim on donations of £20 or less a week up to
£5000 a tax year. Basically this means that the church or any club or association that
has donations can recover £1250 each year.
Childswickham Church as many others has an obligation to upkeep and to pay a
central diocese a parish share. In that respect they rely on collections and or donations
to pay this and maintain upkeep, insurance, heating etc. . As there is a maximum the
churches can recover through cash collections by far the best way of making your
money count is to give by envelope or a trackable standing order to the church account.
If you are a tax payer then every £10 you give is worth £12.50
Your donation is confidential only known to the treasurer and the inland revenue
appointed person. You receive an assigned numbered envelope so confidentiality is
maintained. You can give at any time.
HOUSE OF THE OPEN DOOR COMMUNITY
MENS PRAYER BREAKFASTS
These are held at 8.30am on the first Saturday of each month, and gentlemen you are
weLcome to come and “taste and see”. Good food followed by good singing and prayer, if
you would like to stay. No charge, but donations welcome. Let us know in advance if you
are coming and if you have any particular dietary requirements.
LUNCHES AND EVENING MEALS
We also cater for small groups who would like to book in for a meal. Number of courses,
menus and costs can be discussed with Klara, the head cook!

musician. His talk was entitled “Music in Shakespeare” and he explained that many
composers have been inspired by Shakespeare’s Words and he referred to numerous
musical quotes from Shakespeare plays. At one point he donned a cape and hat and acted
out a short scene from Othello – not only a talented musician but also a great actor!
There was a wonderful array of instruments set out in the hall including
clarinets of different sizes, saxophones, a penny whistle, a recorder and more obscure,
crumhorns, an Australian outback saxophone, and a waterphone. These he demonstrated in
turn. We were also treated to several pieces of music used in plays over the years,

Vale of Evesham Blossom Trail
Mid March - Mid May
The Vale of Evesham is home to one of the ‘Top Wonders of Spring’, the Blossom Trail. From mid March through until mid May, The Vale becomes engulfed with the beautiful blossom colours. The blossom trail, now in its 31st year
is an enchanting 45 mile route signposted by the AA taking you on a journey through some of the most delightful
villages the area has to offer.
The Blossom Trail is among five major blossom events on earth. To see the others you would have to travel as far as
Japan and USA!
Places to visit along the trail include the village, Bretforton. An ageless village built almost entirely in the 17th
Century appealing to visitors from all over the world. It has been used in the making of a number of films and TV
shows, including Martin Chuzzlewit, Robbie Coltrane’s ‘B Road Britain’, ‘The One Show’ and most recently the BBC
period drama ‘Land Girls’.
The Fleece is open all day throughout the season, why not enjoy lunnch amongst the blossoms of our very own

Additionally there will be a Coffee and Gift Day on Saturday 11th April at 10.30a.m. in the Village
Hall. Please come and enjoy a time of fellowship.
You will soon be seeing a new notice board outside your village church. It is a leaving present
from the Reverend John Partington and is much appreciated and will, I am sure, be much admired.
You will see from the service rota above that I have included a Good Friday Service. I believe
this will be a new addition to your services. My feeling is that if we are to fully appreciate Easter
Day, then we must realise the deep darkness of the cross on Good Friday. Our service will take
the from of prayers, hymns and silences interspersed with a monologue from three separate
people who had an input into the death of Jesus Christ. You will find this an interesting and unusual departure from the usual Good Friday Service. Then of course we have the uplifting and
joyous celebration of Easter when Jesus Christ defied death. This service will be at 10.30 a.m.
in order to be more convenient for you all. You will also see that I have changed the alternate
Sunday service to 9.45 a.m. and trust this extra half an hour will be more acceptable to us
all. By now Aston Somerville residents will have received a letter from me talking of the changes and that I am available for pastoral and Home Communion visits. 01242 269956 or
[email protected] Do have a wonderful Spring, made joyous by Easter Day. Many
