    St Mary’s Organ Repairs

    The PCC are planning significant repairs to the church organ. We have applied for a faculty and
    have now entered a period of
    Consultation. The necessary
    paperwork can be viewed on the church door.
    It is hoped that the works will
    commence after Christmas to be
    completed before Easter.

    we are determined to get our
    fabulous St Mary's Christmas card out to as many homes as possible in the parish, for it gives details of services and activities throughout Advent & Christmas. Please

    Daleford's Lane. Could you do a few? Speak to Chris or Andrew
