Lifestylers presentation to Hedon Red Cross
: the “Sundancers” Lifestyle 2004 team have been
working long and hard this summer to raise as much as possible for their
chosen charity, the British Red Cross. The four girls – ten-year-old
Jessica Yates-Taylor and her 13 year old sister Sarah, plus friends
Chloe Tomkinson (14) and Nicola Jowett (13) – raised the magnificent
sum of £445.50 by bag-packing in supermarkets, car boot sales,
washing cars and organising and taking part in various sponsored events,
the most original being a sponsored “Circus Walk” during
which they walked on stilts, spun hoops and twirled batons from Preston
to Hedon! Jessica, Sarah and Nicola all come from Preston, and as their
friend Chloe lives in Bransholme, it meant a lot of sleepovers with
the rest of her team for them to be able to work together. All their
effort has paid off, and they have presented a cheque for the sum raised
to the delighted manageress of the Hedon Red Cross shop, Julie Screeton.

Thieves, Rogues and Vagabonds!!! Just
a timely warning to those of you living in the Hedon, Paull and Preston
area : don’t think that just because you live in a rural area
that you are immune from the depredations of the dishonest from the
Big City. I speak from personal experience: my car was stolen last week
by someone who entered the house – while it was occupied, but
while the dogs were out being walked (or they’d never have got
past the front door!) – took the keys and drove off with the car.
Thanks to the vigilance of a neighbour, who spotted it being driven
round Hull by the stereotypical louts-in-baseball-caps and called the
Police, and the speed of response of the Police, it has been recovered
more or less intact (but minus its contents, of course.) Conversations
on the subject have made me realise that we are not alone in this –
it seems to be the latest fashion, now that cars are more secure (yes,
we had parked it in a well-lit spot, and anyway, it was broad daylight…
yes, it was locked, immobilised and alarmed) to steal the car and house
keys in order to drive off with the family car – or in one case
I’ve heard of, all three of the family’s cars!
The following church services will take place on Sunday September
