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.
