The Jubilee Committee have sent out invitations to leaders of religions, school, civic & local communities as well as friends of St John’s, former & past. If there is anyone you would like to invite, please let us know asap.

Please note, there will be NO car parking spaces available in the church grounds as they will be reserved for guests, elderly & disabled only.

The Jubilee Committee are asked to report at 4.30pm to collect their sashes and badges to act as stewards.

The Special Jubilee Candle is being decorated by a candle specialist, Imelda Weinger, from Winchester. A volunteer ‘decoration team' helped to decorate 500 smaller candles for the occasion (see photo on this page)

The Jubilee Committee wishes to inform parishioners that the ‘Bucket Appeal’ in November has been postponed. Thank you to all who volunteered to help. It is very much appreciated.
