Western Nepal Disability Trust: We are very grateful to everyone who supported us in the Autumn of 2020, especially as we were unable to do our usual events for much of the year. In particular, thanks to the PCC for the donation received, and to everyone who sponsored Gareth’s weight loss activity. Using the income from these, and some additional donations, and some of our previous balance, we have just been able to give £3000 towards the Palliative care project, which you may remember reading about in the December/Jan magazine. THANK YOU to everyone, and watch out for an article in the next magazine with an update on our projects and our next sponsored fundraising event. Jane, for WNDT Trustees

Electoral Roll: Before the APCM on 25 April, we need to update our Electoral Roll. If you have been attending St Mary’s for more than six months you can join it. It is not a complete revision this year, so if you are already listed on the Roll, no action is needed, unless you have changed your address. If you would like to be included, please pick up an application form from the Church porch (after 12 March) and return it to the Parish Office before the 28 March. You must be on the Roll to vote at the APCM or to stand for election onto the PCC. A copy of the revised Roll will be displayed in the Church porch from 11 April. If you have any queries, please contact me, as Electoral Roll Officer, via the Parish Office: 01943 864405. Thank you, Merel
