    Pew Removal

    The PCC have received the Faculty for the removal of the two short pews and the two book rests, and the work has now been carried out.
    Several requests have been made to the PCC for the purchase of these much sort after items.
    It has been agreed that the fairest way to do this is to ask for sealed bids.
    If you wish to purchase a pew or either of the book rests please put your bid in a sealed envelope and give to Peter Hayward or Chris Ball before the 29th October, when the winning bids will be
    announced. Please indicate if your bid is for a pew or a book rest.
