Please ensure that Sue Howes has your name for catering. There is no charge but donations are requested and any profits go to St Mary’s Disaster Fund. Revd Beth has had a further treatment on her back condition. She continues to bring comfort and care to many people in our parish and is supported by a marvellous team. Thank you to each of them.
