A.Seekers Transport Appeal

Due to the generosity of donors a large amount of goods and products has been collected – too large to fit into one vehicle. At present some are stored by Kris Drake at her home. The next delivery to Newcastle is due Frid. 4th Jan.  for 10a.m.  It would be a help if I could have some assistance with transport on that day. Veronica Yarwood.

Christmas Wish

God give you blessings at Christmas time.

Stars for your darkness, sun for your day.

Light on the path as you search for the way.

And a mountain to climb.

God grant you courage this coming year.

Fruit for your striving, friends if you roam.

Joy in your labour, love in your home.

And a summit to clear.

By Myra Scovel.
