LAMMAS-TIDE GIFTS - In Medieval times, Lammas Day, 1 August, was the day on which thanks were given for the first fruits of the harvest, bread made from the new wheat being offered in Church – literally Loaf-Mass.  Gifts of money, towards the cost of Bread and Wine may be made during the months of July and August.  Small brown envelopes will be found on the cupboard at the back of Holy Ascension, in which to enclose your gift.  Will all those who wish to make Lammas-tide Gifts, kindly  place their contributions in an envelope with the collection, or give to one of the Churchwardens, or to Paul Cochrane, the Treasurer.  Thank you.
