Can you help?
Many of you know that Joan has had to give up cleaning the brass for the church, after many, many years of service. We thank her for her faithfulness, but now need someone to take on this rewarding job. It can be done at a time that suits you, at least monthly, so if you would like some quiet time in the church, and feel you would enjoy doing this, please speak to Moira.
