The Parish Pastoral Council held a meeting on 5th March; we began with an opening prayer.
This was a special meeting of the PPC as we said welcome to four new members; Roque Fernandes, Elsie Ofili, Erica Thurbon, and Colin Wilding. Then we said thank you and goodbye to three long serving members; Liz Conway, Truda Hobbs and Karen Swain. On behalf of the parish we gave the outgoing trio a small token of our appreciation for all their years of hard work and dedication to the parish.
