Dear All

This week has been a wonderful week, but a poignant week, with year 4 leaving concerts/services at Westoning and Toddington lower schools, an entertaining 'Evening with the Vicar' at Harlington, and a special wedding at Toddington this weekend, which was all the more special because it was finally able to take place with family and friends, after having been postponed several times over the past 2 years due to Covid restrictions.  As we enter the school Summer holiday period, a new exciting season of life begins for many people.

Mariia and Izabella send a big thank you to everyone who supported their Ukrainian Charity Concert last week at Toddington Church, and for the toy donations which were collected from Toddington church on Thursday and which are now on their way to Ukraine. Mariia and Izabella have asked me to pass on their thanks to you for your generosity and care. They are very grateful.  I will forward on to you other information in due course.
