Looking ahead to church services in April
As mentioned last month services will resume from April. There will be Holy Communion services, as before this last lockdown, at 08.00 on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, so 11th and 25th in April. Once again please remember to book for these services through the Fishbourne website. The booking system will be set up shortly. Please read Moira’s message in the Parish Letter for all information.

Remembering Bill Fowler
Bill, who lived with his wife Sue in Apuldram for over thirty years, sadly died at the beginning of March. Bill spent most of his working life as a skilled shipwright in Birdham and was a keen boating man. He was also an accomplished gardener and spent many hours creating a delightful garden which gave much pleasure to him and Sue. He will be greatly missed by his many friends and our thoughts and prayers are with Sue, her daughters and families at this time.

Rymans garden open on 17th and 18th April (booking essential)
The garden was not open in April 2020 so this in an opportunity to enjoy the springtime splendour again. In addition to the wonderful show of daffodils, tulips, magnolia and numerous other flowers and blossom, it will be possible to visit the newly restored natural pond which was mentioned in last month’s Apuldram Around. The Apuldram church tea team will be in the church meeting room serving tea and cake. Due to the Covid restrictions this will be self-service with pre-sliced cake packaged up and tea or coffee served in disposable mugs. Visitors will not be able to sit in either the church or the meeting room but as long as the weather is kind to us this should not be a problem. Rain however will not make a very relaxing experience and probably soggy cake!

St Mary’s Meeting Room is now available to the community for hire, either by regular users or for one-off events. For further information please go to the St Mary’s Meeting Room page
