On Saturday 15th September a small but dedicated group of walkers completed a Memory Walk to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society. The route started and finished at the parish church, and took in the very pleasant footpaths along each side of the Afon Elwy. A surprise reward for finishing, apart from the satisfaction of raising much needed funds for the Society, was the fine selection of home-made cakes, tea and coffee kindly donated by the ‘walking’ ladies.
A sum of £92.50, and counting, has so far been raised. If you wish, you can still contribute, by logging onto www.JustGiving.com and search for Marion Hughes St Asaph Memory Walk page. In this way, your donation goes straight to the Alzheimer’s society, and you can add to it by ticking the gift aid box, where appropriate.
Hopefully we will have e few more helpers next year. Every pound raised goes towards the funding of new research, providing precious support to more people, wherever they are, and whatever they are going through.
Thank you everyone.
A gentle reminder that the Flower Arranging Classes start next Friday 21st September, 10.00am to 12.00pm. Further details are below in previous posts, or just input Flower Arranging in the ‘Search’ box.
A few places remain. Don’t be disappointed, book your place now by contacting Marion on 07841 160430, or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Messy Church Holiday Club has continued throughout the school’s summer holidays, held every Wednesday from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
A great variety of activities have and are being enjoyed by very many children, and their parents and grandparents. Activities include numerous craft making sessions, where the children of all ages create crafts that they proudly take home or are left to be displayed in church; there has been interesting and creative painting by the younger ones, and there are singing and story times. A magician came to entertain children and adults alike.
A picnic is provided for each child, which can be enjoyed in the church or on the grass of the churchyard if the weather is fine, where the children can play in safety.
Wednesday 29th August will be the last Holiday Club of this summer season. Hope we’ll see you there for another fun day.

HELP – We are planning a Memory Walk to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society. The ‘walk’ will take place on Saturday 15th September, the time to be confirmed. We’re in the early stages of planning, so if you have any interesting ideas, wish to take part, or if you are able to help in any way whatsoever, please come along to find out more.
The Messy Church Holiday Club happens again this coming Wednesday 08th August, where there is fun for all the family. Come on, join in, for stories; games; singing; crafts, and then a tasty picnic before saying cheerio for another week. If the weather is warm and fine the picnic will once again be outside on the grass.
Below are pictures of the fun in church and afterwards the picnic on the grass; and yes, some children did manage to arrange their own hide-and-seek games around the churchyard. Because of the close proximity of road and traffic the gates of the churchyard will be secured during the picnics for obvious safety reasons.
See you there – Wednesday, from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
Entry is £1.50 per child, which includes the picnic and drinks.

The Messy Church on Sunday 03rd June was held on the lawns of the churchyard in beautiful sunshine. We had crafts and stories together with singing and accompanied this time by two guitarists. All the activities were followed by tasty small bites, hot dogs, hamburgers and soft drinks; the open spaces of the churchyard provided a great safe place for the younger ones to play afterwards.
See you next time – Sunday 01st July.
Messy Church is on the First Sunday of each month 11.00am to 12.00pm.
