Social Events Group invites you to a Family Quiz Evening, suitable for young, old and everyone in between. £2.50 to include a drink and nibbles. Come on your own or as a team. Tickets are available in advance from Social Events Group (Tel: 226 7757) or you can pay on the door.
We have four guests coming to act in the Passion Play on Saturday 8th April, who require some accommodation and a light breakfast on the Sunday morning ~ would you be willing to provide this for one person? If you can help, please contact Eunice in the Parish Office.
One of St. Margaret’s Choir Members, has expressed an interest in learning to play the Church Organ. Would you be willing to act as a chaperone for approximately an hour each week, initially starting on a Sunday after the main morning service. Please contact Eunice in the Parish Office if you would be willing to help. Perhaps if several people volunteer, a rota can be set up so that it’s not a weekly commitment.
