Development Update

Thank to everyone who came to our Open Coffee morning on 9th March. Your support and ideas were great and gives us the courage to proceed with looking for funds and gaining permission to make alterations to the church. People made many suggestions of fundraising ideas so watch this space for details …..

We’re very pleased to report that we have permission from the Diocese to repair the Lych Gate subject to conformation by the Chancellor. Alas more information is needed before we can go ahead with repairs to the walls in the redundant boiler house.

Dates for your diary:

St Michael’s Church yard clear up morning 10-12 Saturday 27th April … and all 4th Saturdays in the month until the autumn. Please help us to keep our churchyard beautiful.
