Scan results are expected in about 3 weeks.Restrictions on emails, phone call and visiting must stay in place for now. Lily thanks everyone for their cards and prayers.

Coffee Mornings – The important and valuable Coffee Morning set up is in danger of collapsing for want of folk to act as ‘team leaders’. There is support from people willing to bake, but we urgently require team leaders. This is not as onerous as it may sound, but is extremely important. The Coffee Morning is an extremely valuable aspect of the church’s work, in that it a well-used meeting place, as well as being an important source of income for both church and other charitable causes. If you want more information, or have any suggestions, please speak to Vivienne Haigh
