n As has been the custom for several years now, it is hoped to have the lilies and other flowers for the Easter period in St. George’s Church. Orders can be placed now.

If you would like to make a donation and have a dedication for someone you wish to be remembered please let Mrs. Betty May know (01424-882667) as soon as possible and by March 25 at the latest.
