Hall Booking and Office Changes
With effect from 1st January 2017, there will be some changes taking place in the Parish Office. From this date, Georgie Ray will no longer work on Wednesdays and will focus solely on church-related issues. Consequently, she will no longer be the contact for bookings or other issues concerning the Parish Centre. Additionally, from 1st January, bookings and other issues for both the Memorial Hall and Parish Centre will be handled by Danielle Argent who will be working in the office Tuesday to Thursday inclusive, between 9.30 a.m. - 12.30 p.m. To facilitate this change, an additional telephone number has been acquired which is specifically for hall/parish centre bookings and this is (01727) 836041, along with a specific e-mail address: hallbooking17@gmail.com. There will be no change to the usual office number or e-mail address for church-related issues. There may be some teething problems during the transition period, so please bear with us. Thank you

Traidcraft Sales
With effect from 1st April 2017, Traidcraft goods will be available by placing an order direct at the Traidcraft website. Further details are available on the Events and Activities / Traidcraft page.
