Pew News and What's on in the parish
Container Missionaries will be very happy to receive the former Collegiate and Portora School uniforms which I understand can no longer be worn as from September. It would be very much appreciated if any uniforms without a school logo eg blouses/shirts/trousers/skirts/jumpers/cardigans be put in one bag and anything with a logo eg school blazers should be put in another bag. The reason is that anything with a logo can be stitched over. Please put a sticky label or a note around the bag listing the contents. Please ensure the uniforms are clean and in reasonable condition. Ernest and Isobel Carrick, organise 'Helping Others Worldwide' and are based in Portadown. After the logos have been stitched over the uniforms they will eventually be sent off in a container most likely to Africa or India. The bags should be either given to either Lynda Collum, or Helen Howe, Enniskillen who has family at the school, or Jean Corrigan, Churchill who has very kindly agreed to stitch over the logos before they are forwarded on. Alternatively, please feel free to leave them into the Cooper Crescent site of Enniskillen Royal Grammar School.
Devenish Bowling Club Tournament will be held in the Reade Hall, Monea on Monday 23rd October, Wednesday 25th, Thursday 26th and Friday 27th October with finals night on Monday 30th October. All bowlers are welcome and entries should be forwarded to William Harpur, The Dairies, Monea, Enniskillen (tel: 028 66341237).
As from 15th October 2017, the old pound coin will cease to be legal tender. The Hon Treasurer would appreciate it if you could stop using the old pound coin in the church collection from Sunday 8th October. This will allow for any old pound coins to be lodged before 15th October. Although banks will continue to accept the old coins after this date, it will only be a short term measure, and we are being advised to have all old pound coins banked before 15th October.
Thank you to everyone who purchased admission tickets and/or came along to the Table Quiz on Saturday 16th September - the sum of £1,360 was raised for renovation works to the Reade Hall.
Can everyone who has responsibility for any Parish organisations please take a look on this website and forward any changes in committees etc via the Parish website contact form to ensure that all information is kept up to date - thank you.
