Church Flowers  Thanks to all who have added their names to the Church Flower Donors list, to date there are still 10 Sundays available. The list is on the table at the foot of the north Gallery stairs if you would like to add your name.

I would like to ask members who attend church to consider putting their name on the sheet for delivery, at present there are over 30 Sundays when there is no-one to deliver. I realise that it can be difficult to plan in advance, but if you would be willing to add your name to an emergency list on the table in the usual place when you could be called on a Sunday when no-one is available to deliver the flowers.

Thanks to those who have said they will donate or deliver.
