Love Hersham February 26th to April 5th
Love Hersham – February 26th to April 5th
We were delighted to receive a message recently from Heather Fellows of Hersham Baptist Church telling us all about Love Hersham.
Love Hersham is a fantastic project being organised for Lent by Heather and Rev. Jackie Richardson from St Peter’s – the launch event will take place on Thursday 30th January at 7:30pm at St Peter’s Church.
Rev. Jackie Richardson was on Radio Woking this morning telling DJ Jon Andrews all about Love Hersham – if you missed it here’s the recording:
Here’s a bit more information from the Love Hersham team:
“I am writing to let you know about an exciting community project for Lent 2020 called Love Hersham. Love Hersham is being organised by the churches of Hersham to show love in as many ways as we can to our community during the season of Lent. We hope to undertake a series of community action projects from litter picking, to painting community spaces, to gardening for the elderly, to putting on free coffee mornings and many more ideas.
Love Hersham will begin on Wednesday 26th February and finish on Sunday 5th April with a final celebration on the afternoon of the 5th April to hear all about the projects which have taken place. More details to follow.
We would love this to be a project that includes the wider community as we know that lots of people love Hersham just as much as we do. We also know how much people gain from doing things for others and how much joy it brings to everyone involved. We already have a number of different community groups partnering with us for Love Hersham and we hope you will want to be involved too.
We would love to hear whether you have any ideas for projects we could undertake as part of Love Hersham and also whether you and your organisation would like to take part in a project yourselves. You can set up your own project or join in others that are going on in the community. We simply ask that you let us know how many hours you have committed to ‘loving Hersham’ so that together we can demonstrate just how much this community means to us.
Our launch event will take place on Thursday 30th January 2020 at 7.30pm at St Peter’s Church in Hersham.
You are warmly invited to join us for the evening to hear more about Love Hersham, find out about some of the projects being organised and to sign up to help with a project.
More information can be found on our website www.lovehersham.co.uk where you can also sign up to volunteer for a project.
You can also follow our Facebook page ‘Love Hersham’ for up to date news about the project as it unfolds.
We look forward to hearing from you soon and please ask if you have any questions about Love Hersham.
Heather, Jackie & Katherine
