February Flood Information

posted 11 Mar 2020, 07:04 by Letton Village   [ updated 11 Mar 2020, 07:09 ]

As you will remember the issue came up at the last benefice meeting about help the local churches could give to the many people in the Parishes who have suffered in the February flood. The houses are still clearing out spoiled effects but the Corporation Foundation Trust has offered practical and financial support. Listed below are the agencies who are helping and their contacts. You will find more information on line.
Financial Flood Funds

1. Corporation Foundation Trust. Non-profit organisation ·. Flood appeal with Hereford Times The Fred Bulmer Centre, Wall St, Hereford HR44HP

2. Diocesan Flood Relief Appeal. Money will be donated to:-Corporation Foundation Trust and other flood relief agencies within the diocese.

3. All Churches Trust is encouraging Christians of all denominations in the UK and Ireland to get in touch if they have incurred additional costs as a result of helping people affected by the floods. 276948259602744/posts/540060476624853/

The All Churches Trust is offering grants to churches that are struggling with the cost of food and drink, as well as additional heating, lighting and cleaning.

4.The Salvation Army (Canonmoor St, Hereford – near Courtyard – 01432 264543) will take warm clothing, bedding, shoes, food & small household items etc and will liaise with other charities on the ground.

5. Food Banks are collecting various items and may be interested in the donation of small household items.
Perhaps each church would like to decide for itself which of these agencies they would like to support financially or practically.

Open Reach: Please consider writing to the chief executive of Open Reach to plead that the Letton Open Reach Box be moved to a higher level. As it is Broadband and telephone contact are lost for 2 weeks for all supplied by that box with even a minor flood. The Mobile reception is poor and variable so the result is that those flooded cannot contact family, friends or agencies. The Open Reach box was placed in an area that floods regularly, despite workmen being repeatedly informed that it would flood.

Guinea Service Tuesday 29 October at 6.30pm

posted 7 Sep 2019, 11:26 by Letton Village

St John the Baptist Church, LETTON

In 2016 the Rev. Sean Semple revived the wishes of
Mrs. Elizabeth Freeman, as expressed in her last will and testament Dated 1810 and as reproduced on the
Letton Church Commemorative Mugs.

“....... and to pay The Minister of Letton Church, one Guinea for a sermon in the Church on the 29th October yearly, forever.” 
Elizabeth Freeman 1810

The Rev. Semple gave a sermon and the congregation then voted, anonymously, as to whether he had earned his guinea. I am pleased to report that he was awarded his guinea and the afternoon ended with tea and cakes. 

This year October 29th falls on a Tuesday.
The service will be held at 6.30 pm on Tuesday 29th October in St. John the Baptist Church, Letton. HR3 6DH
This year our Bishop, The Right Reverend Richard Frith has agreed to have his sermon judged by the secret ballot to establish if the Letton Guinea Trophy has been earned.

Everyone Welcome - come and judge what will be one of Our Bishop’s last sermons in in the diocese
before his sad (for us) retirement. 

And enjoy the free refreshments
