We are really pleased with our achievement in getting the loo and kitchen together with the community room, and are inviting people and organisations who have helped to this buffet lunch. We do still need more funds for tables and chairs as well as for renewing the carpet at the back of church, so please do support fundraising events!

Thank You J

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.

There is a lot going on in this parish. There are many ways to keep in touch with what is going on.
