Special thanks to Pam Davies and Chris Newton for providing the pastoral lunch afterwards.
St Mary's PCC is looking at how we use our Church building and how accessible it is. We are using a Diocesan survey called 'Millstone or Springboard' and the more
people we can ask the better
picture we have to work with. Please help us by completing the questionnaire as you see the church during the week, not just on a
Sunday morning. Thank you.

Chris & Barbara Humphries have been in touch to say that, as we had suggested, they have used our gift of money to commission a stone bird bath for their garden in

Jennifer Tetlow, and are thrilled with the results. See the notice board for a photo.
