Church Illumination

The external lighting for the church has now been repaired. There is an opportunity for anyone to sponsor the illumination of the church to celebrate a birthday, wedding or anniversary or to remember a loved one. A donation of £10 will light the church for a week.

Please let me have your dedications by 1st of each month. Each month’s dedications will be displayed on the noticeboard and the website and will be circulated to the village email list. You can pay by bank transfer or in cash to Gill Brounger (Newton Cottage, Green Lane). Thank you.
