St Mary’s Stewardship Initiative

A letter will shortly be received by members of St Mary’s congregation setting out this initiative.

St Mary’s Summer Fair

Members of Vestry have also been considering fund-raising activity. Apart from development of the now well-established concerts, a Summer Fair is now being provisionally considered for the morning of Saturday 18th June. Please put this date in your diary now. Obviously a number of volunteers will be required with assistance and bright ideas. If you feel you might assist, could you please be in touch with Christopher Roads, Susan Forsyth or Richard as quickly as possible?

St Andrew’s Spring Cleaning Morning
