Notes
1) The Food Bank donation box is still at the back of the church. This is being well supported.

2) We have again had lead stolen from the porch roof. It has been made fairly watertight and we are examining the possibility of replacing it with a non-lead material since it is so vulnerable. If you want more details speak to one of the churchwardens.

3) Starting in the spring there will be a Craft Group meeting at Cedar Cottage, Woodhill Road. The plan is to make cards for birthdays etc. If you are interested, secure your place by signing up soon. Places are limited. (List on the welcome table)
