Eric’s Spring Message

Dear Friends

At this time of the year, most of us have had enough of short days and long winter nights and we are looking forward to the start of Spring. The good news is that Spring is not far away now.

Behind us are the cold dark damp days of the Winter season and the early sign of Springtime are in evidence.  Hazel catkins in the hedgerows, bright yellow daffodils and the new green leaves and greenery on display in the woods and trees. Overhead the noisy rooks are busy sorting out their nesting spots!

I always look forward to St David’s day each year (1st March) with its links with the daffodils and for the fact that the Winter months of January and February are behind again by then!

Mothering Sunday is always a very special time for all of us (26th March this year) and our booked preacher for this time is Mrs Jean Auckland.

We all look forward too, in anticipation, to the Easter Season, I’m sure, and to all the things we associate with Easter time. Our morning service on Easter Day this year (16th April 11:00 a.m.) is to be lead by Mr Ken Milwood of Bristol.

Two weeks later, on Sunday 30th April, we celebrate once again our chapel anniversary. This year at Tabor we mark 156 years as a Church and 87 years as a free (independent) Church – facts well worth celebrating! Please share in these special occasions if you are able.

Meanwhile… greetings to you all, – and Best Wishes, especially to those who are feeling a bit under the weather at the presen.
