Welcome to the April/May edition of the ICN!
The year seems to be flying by! I can't believe that I have already finished editing an ICN which covers May!
As Ickenham gears up for a very busy Spring, this edition of the ICN is once again jam packed with items, articles, reports and calls for support for a variety of worthy causes. Chris Potter, 2nd Ickenham Scout Leader, writes about all the activities that his scout group will be undertaking over the next couple of months to raise funds for something very special - find out what inside! And Christian Aid week is on the horizon again. Please do remember to tick the Gift Aid box if you are a taxpayer. It does not cost you a penny more but means that Christian Aid can claim back from the treasury the tax that you have already paid on your donation. This is a very important way of making your donations count for more and quickly mounts up for the charity concerned. So please do tick the Gift Aid box if you can.
The lead article this time is all about how the whole of Ickenham - community and church - came together to help support one of our local toddler groups. It is a lovely story! They are again looking for help - do support them if you can. Older children, this time from Glebe School, went on a very exciting trip recently - all the more poignant in light of recent events - happily it was very successful. And there is a call out for Ickenham's 11-18 year olds to join in the Neon Ignite Youth Club.
Elsewhere, Felicity and URC Elder, Celia, focus on the Easter story, its meaning and Easter events happening around Ickenham. Do join in if you are able.
