A note from Sandra
A BIG thank you to Sharon and all those who
helped me celebrate my retirement from my
Church Administrator post last Sunday morning –
from those who prayed with, and for my spiritual
needs, to those who supplied the cake for my
physical need!
So many good wishes, cards, emails and gifts – it
was quite overwhelming. A thank you also to June
and her wisdom in choosing things (lots of) which I
greatly enjoyed receiving, and will be using.
A thank you also to all who have supported me in
the Church Office week by week during the past 6
years, and especially over the past months
(especially Anne and her taxi service!).
As many of you will know my ‘Admin’ duties do not
end with the post of Church Administrator, as I will
continue with the monthly Church rotas, so be
careful I may be approaching YOU to help with
these over the coming weeks!

Would you like to have the crosses…
…lit on the tower one evening in memory of a
loved one or to celebrate a special occasion? If
so, please contact Revd Sharon Lord on 01502 516800. A donation towards the cost would be appreciated.
