VOLUNTEERS REQUIRED

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.

Help is needed to put together "posies of daffodils" for the 10a.m. Service. If you can help please meet on Saturday 25th March at 9.30a.m. in the Parish Centre. Names to Diane Childs or Rosemary Gaunt please. Many hands make light work!
