ON SUNDAY MANY PEOPLE CAME TO TIXOVER TO PRAY FOR THE CROPS AND FARM ANIMALS, TENDED BY OUR FARMERS.
Many had walked from their own Parishes. During the service we went round the Church yard viewing the green fields and animals and some of the crops, although this year they are about six weeks behind.
The weather was perfect and all prayed that it would be a successful season for crops.
Afterwards the Tixover renowned hospitality, provided refreshment and drinks.

On the day when we remember the visit of the three kings to Bethlehem to find the baby Jesus, we have some pictures of the Duddington crib. This crib was originally made for the disabled children, when they had a home at Tixover Manor.
Duddington Remembrance Service 12th November 2017
St Mary’s held a most successful remembrance service for Tixover and Duddington, led in an excellent manner by Rev Peter Jupp.
The congregation of over 30 were especially pleased to be accompanied by Duncan Mc Irae on the church organ . Wreaths were laid on the altar by Evie Holder (9) and Tilly Maunder (6) and the Church Wardens.
These were later collected and taken to the war memorial.
We very grateful to Duncan’s son Rhairi ,who travelled down from Leeds University to play the last post and National Anthem at the Memorial, following the laying of wreaths from the Parish Council and the Church. After the service everyone returned to the warmth of the Church to enjoy Mulled Wine and mince pies.
The Harvest Festival season is almost upon us! Wakerley Church is first up on Sunday 10 September at 3pm. All are most welcome!
At each of our Harvest Services we will be collecting dry goods, tins or toiletries for the Stamford Foodbank. Please bring a contribution with you.
In recent weeks the local foodbanks have almost run out of goods which is very serious. We, in our relative affluence, can do something to change that. Please be generous.
