Christmas Cards. I shall be selling cards once October gets under way. It helps if you can let me know in advance if you’d like any this year. I shall also be arranging a stall (table) in The Lanes and as usual would appreciate any help and company on the day. I’ll let you know the date as soon as it is confirmed. If anyone would like to take some cards to his/her workplace, or if you’re retired to a social or sports club just let me know (522977). It doesn’t matter if you sell only a few – or none at all – as long as you give it a go. Let’s aim to have record sales this year. John Metcalfe

Car Park. There is some frustration with car park users on Sunday mornings due to people parking in the middle of the car park which prevents some properly parked cars from exiting. Our 11:15 service finishes later than the URC and Methodist services and it is quite wrong to block the car park. Emergency access aside, there is increased risk of vehicle damage as people try to extract their cars. Please park in marked bays only and leave the spaces for those who most need them. There is parking for £1 in Tesco where the spaces are generous and less likelihood of damage to cars.

Shoe Boxes are now available from the back of church.
