Once again another very successful twelve months for the Friends of St. John’s.  As usual, we have raised monies from various events including Table Top Sales, Farmers Market, Brass band Concert, Christmas Raffle, etc.

Last November we had a very successful and enjoyable Brass Band Concert.  A raffle was also held during this event. This was followed by refreshments in the Church Hall. 

In December “Team Friends” helped put up the Christmas tree and decorations in the church. Throughout the year they have maintained the church grounds, graveyard, garden and wildlife garden.

Another cheque was presented in April to the church for the “Heating Fund”.

Unfortunately the Ukulele Concert in May had to be cancelled.

The following month yet another cheque was presented to the church for the “Heating Fund”.  We will continue fundraising for this.                                                                                              During the last twelve months we have had two Curry Nights at Deeva, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.


We held our “Heritage Open Day” in September and this was very well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by all who came along.  Once again, a wonderful array of photographs was    provided and displayed by the two Malcolm’s and other helpers also a big thank you to Eileen Sheller for her organ recitals throughout the day and Allan Hardcastle for his military      memorabilia.

As well as our own display Pudsey Civic Society had a table displaying and selling books.  A new addition this year was a display by The Friends of Rehoboth Baptist Burial Ground.  Their aim is to reclaim and maintain this historic burial ground to make it accessible as a community asset.

Refreshments were available throughout the event at the    kitchenette. 

We continue to have regular tables at the Farmer’s Markets and Table Top sales selling bric-a-brac and books.

We were very sorry to see our Curate Hannah Lievesley leave St John’s but wish her every success in her future at St. Chad’s Church in Headingley.  We are also very sorry to see Paul Tudge leaving this month (January).






It was a very good day for our sponsored walk this year and it went down extremely well in September.  This has prompted us to have the 2020 walk also in September (19th). Up to date this year we have raised over £400 and we still have money        outstanding.



Friends had a great time once again with good food and service at Deeva. The next curry night will be on Saturday 18th April, come and join us it’s very enjoyable.  Could YOU be curry   master and organise the evening (collect numbers attending etc. and advise Deeva)? If so please contact Malcolm Haist.
