THANK YOU! There has been a tremendous response to my request for help in providing refreshments for the Royal Marines Band Concert this Wednesday. There are still a few platters left in the basket at the back of church so please take one if you can – if they all come back full of delicious snacks then we’ll be able to feed the 5,000… well, the large audience at least! Please would you bring your platter to the Church Hall any time after 2pm this Wednesday or leave it in the kitchen clearly marked ‘Concert refreshments’ if you need to leave it earlier. Many thanks again for your help. Gill Barge
Advance Notice: any adults or young people (11 years or over) who would be interested in being Conﬁrmed, please speak to Revd Sandie as we will be starting a Conﬁrmation Preparation course early in 2018.
