Do you have time to lend a hand?

The Guild of St Candida looks after the cleaning of the Church and needs to replace
two members who have retired recently. An hour or so every couple of months is all
that is asked. If you would like to help, please call Tricia Fry (01297 489082).

Other Odd Jobs in and around the Church crop up from time to time and, if you could
be available every now and again, please call Sue (01297 489375), who will be
delighted to hear from you.
