RECYCLE YOUR USED STAMPS

Don’t forget to save used stamps? There is a box in the corridor between the Hall and the Church where used stamps can be deposited. These will be collected by Ruth Crouch and sent to The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. Please can all stamps being donated be trimmed clear of the perforations.

OPERATING THE SOUND DESK

For each service where sound amplification is used, we need someone to set up, operate and tidying up the equipment. This is not an onerous job, but it is important. Could I please ask for volunteers for this task? Tony Norris will provide training, which we hope to arrange in early March. As well as training, we will ask that each 'trainee' sits alongside an experienced operator (either Tony or Sally) for at least one service. Ideally, we are asking for at least six people willing to share this task. Please contact Tony as soon as practicable to indicate your interest.          PM

ADVANCE NOTICE – MOTHERING SUNDAY

There will be a combined Benefice family service (no Communion) 10am, at the Abbey Church on Sunday 31st March.
