News from the PCC

It was agreed to use the generous donation in memory of Joy Issott to purchase an arbour for the churchyard, which will house the two curved benches and be dedicated as a Jubilee garden in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee … the balance from the donation can be used to buy some climbing plants. It should provide a lovely and lasting focal point and place to sit.

On a personal note .. “The Hope of Spring”

What would summer be without some new music to enjoy ? !

Lockdown reflections have resulted in the creation of another instrumental CD with a variety of styles, creative tunings, and lots of fun! Copies are available from me at £10 in a card sleeve or £12 in a plastic box.


As Covid rises again, please stay safe – masks are still available in church



Face Masks are required but for the benefit of those who still feel vulnerable, people are wearing them – there is gel at the door and chairs are distanced to minimise any infection
