A big thank you to all who supported our Strawberry Tea event on Saturday 23rd July.
We raised just over £600 towards church running costs, which is fantastic.
Special thanks to Miller Howe Hotel, Windermere, Windermere Lake Cruises and Brambles for their raffle prize donations and to McClures for donating the strawberries, which were delicious.
Tuesday 12th July, 2016 - Little Pips Leaders Thea Ford and Marie Wright stood down as Pip Leaders. There were 30 children attending along with Mums, Dads and Grandparents who enjoyed their usual coffee time, activities, sing-along and story, after which Chris Whittaker and Jo Fahy-Coward presented Thea and Marie each with a bouquet of flowers and a framed picture of the children’s hands that had been cut out in card and made into a collage by Chris’ husband. It was an emotional time with lots of hugs and kisses.
We wish Thea and Marie all the best and many thanks for all the support they have given to Pips parents and children since the group started in September, 2006.
Pips will start again during September and will now be led by Chris Whittaker and Lynda Durrell along with Ann Taylforth and Shirley Taylor.

A very big thank you to the members of The Encore Opera Group for the lovely performance on Friday evening. A very enjoyable time was had by all. We hope to see you at St. Mary's again soon.
We were delighted to welcome the touring choir of the University of Maine, Orono, ME in the North East United States. We all had a fantastic evening. The program included Sanctus from Mass in D, Irish poems set to music, songs from the musicals, Sweeny Todd and A Little Night Music. And a very moving piece written by Luke Flynn - Beneath the Wave, sung solo in Japanese, which was amazing.
St. Mary's was part of the singers Ireland and UK Tour. They now continue onto Ely Cathedral and Southwark Cathedral over the next few days. We wish them all the very best.
We raised £275 on the night. Proceeds from the concert are to be divided between Community Action Nepal www.cannepal.org.uk, and St. Mary's Church.
Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the event.

On Tuesday 6th November, Revd. David Wilmot, our Church Wardens, the Little Pips Leaders, Mums and Children took part in planting a Ribston Pippin Apple Tree in the grounds of the church. A short prayer was said, and the Vicar blessed the tree.
This tree was planted to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Year. An apple tree was chosen to signify that the church is the Parish Church of St. Mary’s, Applethwaite. Little Pips Mothers and Toddlers Group are so called because apples grow from pips!
The tree was donated by “Fruity Windermere” a Community Food Group whose aim is the encouragement of fruit growing in the Parish of Windermere, Bowness and Troutbeck Bridge.
As the children get older they will see the tree grow along with them. They will be able to tell their children, and future generations that they helped to plant the tree at St. Mary’s.
You can now donate to St. Mary's online. If you are a visitor then please consider supporting our work for the Kingdom in Windermere. If you are a regular member of St. Mary's but are away then please remember us!
To donate go to the Donations webpage which can be found in the footer menu towards the bottom of your current webpage.
