Please speak to Terry over your availability to cover meetings and help plan ahead over this period.

House-keeping rule reminders: 

Please place all goods donated for selling at the coffee morning into the store room.

Please place all rubbish either in the bin or take straight out into the green bin outside.

Please make every effort to keep the Hall tidy and not leave this to others to reflect a fitting environment as a House of God and for the activities of the Corps.
A reminder there is now a "FLOWER ROTA" pinned on the notice board. Anyone willing to provide a small bunch of flowers for the hall on Sundays, please select a date and put your name down. Members of the congregation may wish to commemorate a loved one or a special occasion by supplying flowers for the Altar Table. Some dates have already been taken. To avoid disappointment, it is advised to put your name down early for selected dates.
