Firstly a very big thank you to the very many people who contributed in so many ways. And to all those who attended; weren’t we lucky with the weather! This is an account of how we did and what use is made of the funds raised. The money raised (and more will come in as we continue to sell oplants on Sunday) is put into a “Special Projects Fund “. In previous years this money has been used to pay for such projects as adapting the toilets for disabled use and emergency repairs necessitated by water getting in through the roof of the Sacristy.

The financial health of the parish would be considerably strained without your generosity so thank you, once again.
