Can you spare some time to help?


If you can spare some time every now and again, please let us know if you would be up for:

1) Assisting with parking, on the odd occasion when we have a concert, funeral or wedding and expect more than usual visitors. Help to keep the lane free for passing traffic and emergency vehicles. No more than an hour or so at most. Please talk to Ros on 489055

2) Help to move the piano in the church for concerts and other events. This is not hard work and takes only a few minutes - but it needs more than one person! Please talk to John Bain on 489629 if you might be able to help occasionally.
