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.

If you wish to use the church at any time, please check with the deacons to see if it is ok and then check with Sheila Little to make sure the church is free.
