We are now busy planning the installation and also the much loved bun fight afterwards in the Queen’s Hall. Everyone is welcome at this service and also to the Queen’s Hall, where finger food, hot and cold drinks and wine will all be available. Thank you to all who have volunteered to help and all who are already busy getting things ready for the service. It will be a great celebration! Paul Evans
‘For the Fallen’ St. Mary’s singers will present a collection of songs, readings and prayers on Sunday 7th September 2014 at 6.00 p.m. in Church to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the outbreak of WW1. There will be opportunities to join in with the choruses of a number of popular songs of the time before we begin to reflect upon the more serious consequences of the ‘War to End all Wars’. Refreshments will be served after the event. We are hoping to display some memorabilia ( e.g. family photographs /stories etc.) from WW1 at the back of church. If you have any items that you are willing to loan for the evening please have a word with Gill Evans or Jeanne Denny. There is no charge for this event because it is in place of evening worship. However, any donations on the night will be sent to the Royal British Legion. 



1.Someone willing to look after the Parish Centre garden. The small grassed area needs cutting in the summer and the surrounding borders need to be weeded. It is a task that can be done to suit the time available to the person offering. It does not include hedge-cutting.

2. Someone to maintain the commercial dishwasher. This only entails a couple of tasks. Adding salt to the water softener and cleaning the filters about every 3 months - a 1/1½ hour job.

3. Occasional caretaking: opening/closing tasks or covering for holidays.

Call in or ring the office (01943 864405) any Tuesday morning and speak to Becky.

You would join a very happy band of Centre volunteers!
