On Sunday 29th June St Cyr’s Church in Stinchcombe is holding its first ever Animal Service: a short and informal outdoor service to thank God for the animal kingdom in general and for our own pets and other animals in particular. Why not come along, bringing your animals with you: ponies, dogs, cats and small animals are all very welcome.
If you don’t own an animal, please still come and enjoy the occasion, which will take place in the church field just below St Cyr’s Church starting at 3.30pm. Dogs should be on leads, please, and small animals in cages or baskets to keep them safe. Homemade cakes and squash will be served after the service. If wet on the day, please check the church website: www.camandstinchcombe.org.uk
‘All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.’

Stinchcombe Village Players (RSVP) are back this year – bigger and better than ever! We are performing ‘Sleeping Beauty’ on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th March at 7:30pm, and on Saturday 8th March at both 2:00pm and 7:00pm (under 3s go free at the matinee).
The lead roles of Princess Aurora and Prince Valiant are taken by Luna Stephens and Sophia Smout, while King Basil and Queen Sybil are played by Sebastian Hamilton and Catherine Lloyd. They will need your support to defeat the wicked Zelda Blackadder, played by returning director Sarah Hopkins, while the Dame is portrayed by newcomer to the cast, but old hand to the stage, Daniel Johnson. There are many other faces, both returning and new, and the cast includes pupils from Rednock, KLB, Stroud High and North Nibley Schools.
As always the performances promise to be a highlight in the village year. Tickets are priced at £6 and will sell out fast for the popular nights – so get in early by ringing Nola Bradley on 544611, or you can buy them online (for the first time ever!) from www.stinchcombevillageplayers.org.uk.
