“STEPPING Out”: Silchester Players present “Stepping Out”, a comedy, on May 9, 10, 16 and 17.

Tickets are £8, concessions £6, and are available from 0118 9815600.

VILLAGE Market: Takes place on Saturday, May 3, from 10am to noon. The plant stall should have increased stock ready for planting in our gardens.

ANNUAL Church Meeting: On Tuesday, starting at 7.30pm, in the Mission Church, with the election of new churchwardens.

Everyone in the village is welcome and can attend this meeting. Coffee will be served at 7.15pm.

CHURCH car park: This is not a public car park and although visitors are welcome to use it for events in church, cars are left at the owner’s risk.

Please check if there is a wedding or a funeral taking place before occupying a space. One visitor with a dog was rather irate at being wedged in by funeral cars!

OUR magazine: Congratulations to Trevelyan Bowden-East-Farrell (Year 5), whose drawing will be on the cover of the May magazine, and to all the children from our local school who took part. Over 160 drawings were judged.
