Leesfield Parish June 19th 2016


There is a lot going on in this parish. There are many ways to keep in touch with what is going on. The weekly newsletter and ‘dates for your diary’ is usually available either by e mail or as a paper copy. The magazine has information. Liz Dent produces an electronic copy of Calendar dates. There is also St Thomas’ blogspot.  Please make sure you check these regularly so you don’t miss anything!


PCC meet tomorrow, Monday June 20th 7pm St Thomas.


Bonus ball is struggling a bit because some people who have numbers have got behind with payments. Also there are several available numbers if you’d like to join (£1 a week, if your number is the bonus ball on Saturday’s lottery draw you win a cash prize.) Susan Harrop is the person to contact or pay. If anyone is prepared to take on running Bonus Ball please would they talk to Susan.
