Notices If you have any items for the notices please let Sheila Little have them by Friday lunchtime. If you are emailing please put the subject as “notices” as this makes it easier for me to pick them out.

All requests to borrow items from the church should be agreed by one of the Deacons. If you are not sure who they are, their photos and names are on the board in the side entrance hall. A note should also be made on the list in the back hall when the item is borrowed and when it is returned.

Maldon Food Bank If you wish to contribute there is a box in the entrance hall for donations of food. Items suitable for Christmas hampers are also required.
