Vestry Meeting and PCC Annual General Meeting These will take place on Sunday 16 March after morning service.   Everyone who is on the electoral roll is very welcome to attend.  We urgently need nominations for two churchwardens and three members of the PCC.  Nomination forms are available in the narthex. Would all current sidespeople and anyone who would like to join the team of sidespeople please sign the form in the narthex.  In addition we also need a new treasurer.

Church Electoral Roll This was completely renewed in 2013, as required every six years. Each year a review has to take place so if you are on the roll please let me know if your address details have changed. Also if anyone wants to be added to the Electoral Roll please see me or collect a form from the black folder in the narthex.  Thank you.  Sonia Tipper.

 

 

FOSMS  say thank you to everyone who came along to support the Space Night event held on 12 February. The school hall was packed with families all keen to understand more about space; a total of £280 was raised - a brilliant result!  The next FOSM’s fundraiser will be the Easter raffle, the tickets for which will be distributed via reading packs.  Please look out for these and details of the amazing prizes in the coming weeks.  The raffle will be drawn in school on Thursday 3rd April.
