Parochial Church Council  -  URGENT

At the Vestry and Annual meetings held on Sunday 16 March, Graham and Jim resigned as Churchwardens and Stewart resigned as Treasurer.  Unfortunately, no-one has yet been willing to come forward to take their places and we now find ourselves in desperate and urgent need of volunteers.  To give more time to try to resolve this, they have agreed to continue in post on a strictly temporary basis, pending another meeting:

Extraordinary Vestry Meeting after morning service TODAY!!!

Everyone on the electoral roll is very welcome to attend.
