Rogation Sunday - 19th May 2019
This was a well attended, prayerful occasion with about 80 people from the joint churches attending. Thanks are due to the farms, and to all who attended: the clergy who led the prayers and to the talented, hard working ladies of our parish who put on a wonderful supper which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The commitment of all these people to ensure the success of the Rogation Sunday Service was exceptional and greatly appreciated. Heartfelt thanks to you all.
Thank you to all who supported our Greek evening which raised a fantastic £801 for the Roof Restoration Fund. Special thanks to Paddy who inspired and organised the evening. The Greek dishes she and her family provided were wonderful. Special thanks also to Poppy for her delightful Greek singing and dancing.

The Golden Jubilee Celebration, 20th May, 2017: The whole Community and their support ensured that the event was memorable and successful. Visitors came from far and wide, some even from Brazil!! Approximately 380 people attended. Never was such a great congregation assembled at St Anne's, Westby!
In 2006, our parish was honoured to witness the First Holy Communion of six of our children, Elizabeth Craine, Heidi, Jennifer Wilson, Poppy and twins Christian and Isabella. In June 2010 George Craine & Olivia McGivern celebrated theirs and Georgina McGivern, Carys Owen & Carla Owen celebrated theirs in February 2016. In June 2019, Brandon & Amelia, a wonderful occasion for them, their families and the whole parish community!
Thank you to all that came to Rogation Sunday. It was lovely to see such diverse farms and how they are run. Thanks go to Birks Farm, Penny Farm and New Moss House Farm. Also to the parishioners of St Matthew’s Ballam who hosted us beautifully. Also thanks goes to all that brought the “Fancy Cakes”.
