    Thank You

    To everyone who came along last Saturday to help with the ‘Big Clean’ both inside and outside the church.
    Special thanks to Pam Davies and Chris Newton for providing the pastoral lunch afterwards.

    Survey

    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.

    News from Chris & Barbara

    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
    Flamborough. They went to the Yorkshire sculptor we found,
    Jennifer Tetlow, and are thrilled with the results. See the notice board for a photo.

    Prayer List

    We welcome new names of those who are ill to be added to our weekly list for prayer. This is intended for a short to medium term prayer list.
    After two months names will be
    transferred to the vicars long term
    prayer list. You can of course request that the name goes back on the list for a further period.
    Regular updates would be appreciated about the condition of those who are sick.
    Please let the vicar or Linda Dutton know.
