St Thomas Becket's first ever flea market was a great success, coming in over budget at more than €1200. Well done to Deb Zeni for organising it and to everyone else who helped make it happen.
Our summer flea market takes place next Saturday, 16 August, 9am – 4pm. Please come and help in any way you can. We need people early to put out tables and carry the goods. We need sellers and people to give fliers to passing people on the footpaths.
Most importantly, please come and buy!
British Flair is taking place this weekend, 9 and 10 August at the Hamburger Polo Club (Jenischstraße 26, 22609 Hamburg), with plenty of fun for all the family. The Anglican Church of St Thomas Becket is performing a musical comedy routine on Sunday at 3pm on the Small Stage. Please come and support Matthew, Yotin and the rest of the team and help raise money for this year's British Flair charity, the Förderverein für Stadtteilarbeit in St. Pauli Süd e.V. The easiest way to get there is by S-Bahn to Klein Flottbek (Botanischer Garten). See the British Flair website for more information.
In view of the heat, the Church Wanderers are proposing to stroll gently under the trees in Ohlsdorf Cemetery on Saturday 9 August, meeting at the main gate at 10.15 am. If you want to join in, please let Cicely know as soon as possible: cicely-hollingsworth (at) t-online.de, tel: 040/86 07 90, mobile: 0162 635 93 98.
