Sponsored Bike Ride
On Saturday 14th September seven Northwold riders, (Jo & Jim Norris, Patricia & Ian Haye, Martin Chilvers, Lindsey Boatman and Mark Elwes,)  raised 469 on the Norfolk Churches Trust Sponsored Bike Ride. Half of which goes to St. Andrew's Church, Northwold and the other half to the Norfolk Churches Trust. This figure compares favourably with last year's 461, particularly as there were only seven as against eleven riders. Lindsey

Boatman again wins the prize for visiting the most churches and raising the most money. 
The challenge must be to get many more riders and a team from our American neighbours. We do have tremendous fun, often someone gives a party in the evening. Everyone goes at their own pace so there is no sense of competition and we meet up at a pub for lunch. Please, if you have or can borrow a bike, do join us next year.

Father Christmas
He so enjoyed his visit to Northwold last Christmas that he is coming again on Saturday, November 30th. Look out for him - as he drives round the village (2.45 - 3.15pm), on his way to St Andrew's Church where you can come to see him and tell him what you would like for Christmas. Don't forget - look out for him in his horse drawn "Santa Wagon"!
