The main project is complete. Thanks to all of you we have installed water and a cess pit at church. We have a toilet, servery and a totally rebuilt gallery. You have all been so generous that I hate to say that we now need a new heating system. The electricians during the project found that the church electrics were not as safe as they should be so we are looking at a new heating system.
A very generous donor has provided the funds for a new sound system. Our old system broke down finally just as the work on the church was beginning. It had done sterling service since Ron White installed it but we now need to use our hearing loop properly and provide a 2019 sound system that every member of the congregation will benefit from.
So if you still have a Pennies for the Loo box we are still collecting Pennies for a good heating system in the church and we have fundraising events planned - watch this space.
With thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Church Project
Margaret Jones-Evans, Churchwarden

After many years when volunteers maintained our churchyards so beautifully they have had to withdraw and we are very sorry to lose them. A contractor has been employed and has begun to mow and strim the churchyards fortnightly. Of course this has a cost to it, but we feel that the churchyards are important.
If any villagers would like to contribute towards this cost the PCC would be very grateful –offers to Liz Davidson please.
If there are any villagers who would be prepared to mow and strim the churchyard in 2020 fortnightly I’d be very glad to hear from them.
Thank you – Margaret
