Walking for Health in Paull

 Fancy a 30 minute or a one hour walk? Both will set off from St Andrew Church, in Paull, led by volunteers from the community. Regular walking can help lead to a healthier lifestyle; improve confidence, stamina, energy, weight control and help prevent medical conditions such as coronary heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and stress.

All walks require no specialist equipment, just turn up in loose clothing and suitable shoes. Participants are also asked to bring a drink and an umbrella, as the walks will take place whatever the weather.

There is ample car parking at each walk, plus the chance to use toilet facilities and purchase refreshments at St Andrew Church’s Riverside Pop In Cafe.

Riverside Pop in coffee shop

Thr ‘Riverside Pop in Coffee Shop’ will re-open for the 2013 season on Sunday March 24th 2013. The coffee shop within the Church will be open every Saturday and Sunday from 2.00pm to 4.00 pm between Sunday 24th March 2013 through until October 2013. The coffee shop is a significant source of income and is important in keeping our church open for everyone. Many people come to enjoy the architecture of this 14th Century Mediaval Church. We have our own Heritage Trail, a walk that starts and finishes at the church and takes about 2 hours to complete. A book is available from the Church that not only guides you round the trail but explains the history of the village which dates back to the Domesday Book. This year we have added a new glass porch to the building that will not only further protect the building itself but also increase your own comfort. You may just like to enjoy a quiet cup of tea/coffee and homemade cakes an prices that give excellent value. The tranquility of the Church and beauty of the Church leads many visitors to want to pray quietly at the alter or light a candle in memory of someone. Please feel free to enjoy our church in any way you wish.

The running costs of the Church amount to approximately £1,000 per month and, since it has opened, the coffee shop has proved to be a major contributor to the those costs.

Volunteers needed to run the coffee shop

The coffee shop is open every Saturday and Sunday between 2.00pm and 4.00pm and needs just a few more volunteers to help in the coffee shop which provides the main income that allows the church to remain open. If you are prepared to just give a couple of hours every now and then it would be greatly appreciated. The coffee shop provides not only teas and coffee but a fantastic surrounding to meet other people or even to have a quiet moment for yourself.

If you can spare even a few hours then please phone Mandy Annison on 01964 626115 or Kay Burn 01964 626228 who will be only too pleased to answer any questions you may have.

Easter Egg Hunt

The weather was unable to stop the children having their Annual Easter Egg Hunt. On Easter Monday 9th April 2012 the hunt moved from its original planned venue of The Garden of The Old Vicarage to inside the Church. About 40 children attended the hunt and after searching for the clues and chicks all the children received an egg. Other prizes were also given for the Best Decorated Egg and Easter Bonnet.The entries for both were excellent and it was clear the tremendous amount of work had gone into the works of art. (the photgraph above was taken by Jim Uney and shows many of the children searching for those clues).

Thank you to every one who attended and made it such a wonderful day despite the weather.

Paull Holme Tower

Mr Simon Taylor (the owner of Paull Holme Tower) has provided an update on the efforts to save Paull Holme Tower which you can read by clicking Paull Holme Tower   The tower was open to the public, for the first time, in September 2011 as part of the English Heritage Weekend organised by the Church. Many of the people who visited the site that day (over 600) wrote to English Heritage saying that more should be done to save this 15th century site. English Heritage have responded and you can read the continuing storty on our Paull Holme Tower web page.

New Porch for the Church

Great news for the congregation and friends of the church of St Andrew.  We have secured the funding through fundraising and grants for the installation of the new glass lobby within the main north door entrance.

Work will begin towards the end of January and the lobby should be finished for the opening of the “Riverside coffee shop” within the church on the 25th March 2012.

We hope this addition will help keep our heating bills down: fuel for heating is very expensive for this large building and eats up a great deal of our income. It will also promote a more welcoming entrance with an open door approach and create a warm atmosphere for those wishing to spend time in the church whether for worship, pleasure, refreshments or learning about their heritage.

We wish to thanks all those who have supported the church events throughout 2011, all those who have helped promote the church as a community building and those who have given generous grants or contributions for such schemes to succeed.  We would like to thank (defra) “LEADER” Coast, Wolds, Wetlands & Waterways (The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development Europe, investing in rural areas, supported by Yorkshire Forward the region’s development agency) for their continual support with funding. Without their support it would be hard for the building to survive in today’s society and also meet the social needs of the wider community.

Thank you to those who give their time freely and do so much volunteer work for the good of others.

May God bless those involved and those who support the work of the church family, give them the strength to carry on and encourage them to share faith and love with others and in the community.
