  1. Many thanks to John Lovie for the service on Sunday. Vittoria is back from holiday on Sunday 26th.
  2. Outside the church you will see a tub planted with spring flowers. This is the work of STomP, particularly young Tobyn Kennedy (aged 2 1/2) encouraged by younger sister Bryony.  The STomP theme this week was the Creation and Sue’s young helpers proceeded from the story to the act.  In time we might have several of these tubs.
  3. There will be a training day on 2nd May in Banchory for those interested or already involved in Pastoral visiting.  If you would like to attend, or just want to think about the idea, please speak to Vittoria.  There is a poster up on the noticeboard.
  4. We need a couple of volunteers to organise and serve refreshments after the concert on the 3rd May.  Jo Elson will be away on this date, but is happy to give advice in advance.  Please speak to Jo Elson or Vittoria if you are able to help with this.  If there are no volunteers, there won't be any refreshments!
  5. Aboyne/Dinnet Church are hosting a coffee afternoon for Christian Aid, Friday 22nd May from 3 to 5pm.  Anyone who can offer help with traybakes or waitressing, please speak to Irene.
