This month's ICN focuses first and foremost on the joyous news of the installation of the Revd Felicity Davies as the fiftieth incumbent of the Parish of St Giles'. The service led by Bishop Pete is described in some detail for anyone who was unable to make the service itself. There follows a personal article introducing Felicity to the ICN readership and inside, she gives her first pastoral article, inspired by her recent experiences in Ickenham.
There is a reminder about the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal, outlined by the URC's Dorothy Vickery last month, and full details of how you can contribute to this very worthy cause even if you are not able to donate a complete shoebox yourself. In particular there is a special shout-out for any keen Ickenham knitters who want to donate hand knitted (but not stuffed) toys for the shoeboxes; suitable patterns are available to download from this website!
There are causes for celebration again this month, with highlights of the recent Horticultural Harvest in Ickenham Village Hall and details of what happened at the annual three Churches fun day coming under the spotlight! But there is sadness too, as Ickenham's Abbeyfield home closes after almost 50 years.
