Grapevine - the Christmas edition. Time is marching on, please help me to put together the best yet seasonal St James magazine.Only one thing is needed - your contributions. 

What does Christmas mean to you? Have you had a particularly unusual one? Do you have special memories? Have the last few months changed your view of the season? Are you secretly, or overtly, pleased that things will be different this year? 

What have you read, done, taken up, put down in the past few months?

Plus a special call-out to students - tell us what home schooling and back to school have been like. If you started university how has that been?

All contributions, large or small, very gratefully received by Thursday 26th November.

email to Ann Sangwin or through the letter box at Flat 3, Bramhall Lodge, 2 St James Road - next door to the church.
