Only comments received about the Newsletter proposal last week were favourable and so I have reduced the print run to 40. The newsletter is available at the parish website where you can sign up to receive a weekly copy by email. Hard copies will be kept for those who don't have online access, if you fall into that category please feel free to collect a copy from the sacristy. A copy of the newsletter will also go on the notice board at the back of church.

We have sent over about five boxes of toiletries to Corner Stone and a cheque for GBP421.54p from the poor box.

Again over the last few months some generous donations have been received by the parish. This is really helpful. The warm summer has been kind to us and reduced church heating bills but the insurance premium for the Church, Centre and Presbytery is really high this year at GBP3,616.15p!

Thank you for all your generosity with you money, your time and your prayers.
