Please Park Prettily
Would all churchgoers please park ONLY in Church Meadow (not in the road to Palace House) and also ensure that they leave access to some of the disabled spots in the Meadow close to the Church, for those with limited mobility. The very few spaces in the car park close to the Church Hall are normally reserved for clergy, and for blue badge holders. Thank you for your understanding. FJ/PM

At our recent committee meeting we discussed the pressing need for more assistance with various key events. If you would like to consider playing a part, for instance by offering cooking skills, time or serving, your contribution would be warmly welcomed. In the first instance speak to me. A conversation with FJ does not imply commitment!   FJ
