SUNDAY REFRESHMENTS

I want to record my thanks to Liz Wigfield who has organised the post 9.30am service refreshments for several years; she has done this with great efficiency. She has decided not to continue. As we cautiously resume services and activities, all being well, refreshments will be served on Sunday 23rd May. For that, we shall be in the Cloister, where we are assured of space. For Sunday 30th May we will be using the space outside the Church Hall. Jan Hoy will be co-ordinating these sessions. If you would like your name to go on the new rota, please speak to me. FJ.
