The ever spectacular Overbury Fireworks return on Sunday 5th November 2017 down the bottom of School Lane. Your donations to enter go to Overbury Village Hall. The refreshments provided by Friends of Overbury First School go to the school. We cannot accept card so please do bring cash for entry and the stalls.
Finally, we remind you that you are choosing to attend this event at your own risk – we will not accept responsibility for any personal injury, loss or damage to property. You must keep close control of children for their safety
The Friends of St. Faiths are a group of people who help to maintain the fabric of our lovely church by making regular donations either monthly or once each year. The funds are used to support projects such as maintaining memorial stones, repairing the gutters, replacing stonework and trimming the yew trees. These projects are essential to ensure that the church is kept in good condition so that it can be enjoyed by future generations. We are separate from the church committee who organise the day to day management of the church. The Friend’s meet once a year to discuss projects for the future year.
It would be lovely if you would like to join us for this year’s meeting which will be held on Saturday 14th October during a visit to the churches of Kilpeck and Hoarwithy.
We have booked the minibus and plan to leave Overbury at 9.30.We will visit Kilpeck in the morning; they have an audio guide which can be downloaded from their website onto a mobile phone (http://kilpeckchurch.org.uk). They also have a lot of information for visitors in the church. I have contacted a local pub, The Plough Inn at Little Dewchurch, which offers a range of lunchtime dishes, or you are welcome to bring a picnic along. In the afternoon we will visit the church at Hoarwithy which is an unusual mixture of Italianate and Romanesque Revival architecture. We should get home at about 5.30pm.
If you would like to join us for the trip please phone or email me to book your place. Please contact me too if you would like to know more about the Friends of St Faiths.

The annual summer campfire, BBQ and camp out is a popular event for all the members and their families. Plenty of food, fire and laughter. If you are not a member do join up and come along to meet everyone and have a lovely evening in the Orchard. If the weather is terrible we will move the date.
Now moved to Friday 28th July. Please note:
We'll have a campfire, please bring food and drink to eat and share. Something to sit on, things to wrap yourself and your family up in or keep dry (hopefully it won't come to that). If you'd like to camp too, you can set up during the afternoon. However, please be aware that facilities are extremely limited - this is why it is better kept to members who mostly live locally. Those who are in it for the long haul, bring breakfast for the fire in the morning.
Who is coming?
All COCO members are invited. Feel free to bring a friend but please hold off inviting the 'whole gang' - for reasons explained above we don't have facilities to host a festival! It is literally a small bunch of people, enjoying a barbeque and the orchard - not an 'organised event' as such. Having said that, if you know people who are interested in coming with a view to joining COCO then of course we would be delighted to accept their form and joining fee. See Simon S or Emma Tor the estate office for details.
The ever popular annual street market falls on Sat 8th July 2017. Come along to enjoy craft stalls, ice cream, refreshments, entertainment and catch up with your neighbours.
To offer any help on setting up or clearing up, or for information on running a stall contact Andrew John on 01386 725229
