Gardening Team: Once again it’s that time of the year when the Gardening Team request donations for the purchase of Summer Bedding plants to enhance the Church garden. Each year they rely on your kind donations and it is really appreciated by all the team.
Fairtrade: Sadly the fair-trade shop hosted at the Methodist book shop has had to close. We will however still be able to get tea and coffee for refreshments but unfortunately the weekly stall we have in church will no longer be available.
