co-ordinate with our present screen.

our reserves).  

The PCC has just spent nearly £4,000 on the 5 yearly re-lamping of the church lighting system.

From Lesley

No, my mum and I haven`t moved yet, but hopefully it will happen later this month.  As I can`t get to see everyone I would just like to say thank you to members of St. George`s and
St. Martin`s, for all the loving support you have blessed me with over many years, and for the gifts, cards, and good wishes, I have received.

Wishing you all a Blessed 2018.
