Keeping the Church Grounds Beautiful:

I hope you will have noticed how beautiful the Church grounds look over the summer. We thank our care taker Vitalie and the Ground’s Committee for all their hard work.

It is good to see the youth of the Parish using the Church grounds to play football and socialise. However, we would ask that they and their families co-operate in keeping the grounds tidy. It is sad to see on “Rush Needs You” photos of unacceptable litter left nightly where they congregate. Let’s all co-operate together, in all age groups, to keep the Church and town tidy.
