Roof Appeal Update: Thanks to the great contribution from the congregation and the concerts and now to a good response from trusts, the end of the roof campaign is in sight. It will take a month or two for cheques from some of the successful applications to be received, and we hope that the remaining applications will complete the appeal. This will take time as some of the trusts only consider applications at long intervals. We will let you know when we have firm figures. Catherine Hilliard and Robin Harland
Electoral Roll revision: If you would like to be added to the Electoral Roll, please speak to the Vicar or Jim Smith.
Rose Garden:Many thanks to the parent of the former Chorister who has designed and planted up the Rose bed in the South Churchyard. His modesty prevents us from thanking him by name – but he has asked if the congregation could supply a couple of bags of horse manure to help the plants flourish. I’m sure we would like to respond to this request – please contact Nicholas or a Churchwarden if you can help.
