Welcome to the October edition of the ICN!
People often come to find faith in trying circumstances and this month's ICN leads with the uplifting story, told to the Men's Breakfast, of how one of St Giles' leading lights came to find his faith. It certainly makes for interesting reading!
Elsewhere, Dorothy Vickery encourages all Ickenham residents to support the Operation Christmas Shoebox appeal. She tells a story of how just one shoebox can bring tremendous happiness to a child who has nothing. Full details of what can, and cannot be included in a Shoebox were highlighted in last month's ICN and can be found in leaflets available from the URC, St Giles' and Ickenham Library.
Other stories include what wellie-wanging, parachutes and land girls have in common, what happened at a charity football match, why the traffic was stopped on Ickenham High Road recently, and more.
Read about these stories as well as the rest of this month's ICN by clicking on ‘This Month’s Newsletter’ at the top of the page.
