1.  The church hall will be closed from Saturday 29th July until Saturday 5th August inclusive for floor refurbishment.  There will therefore be NO COFFEE on Sunday 30th July. Coffee will be back on Sunday 6th August.

2.  The Pastoral Support Team would like to inform the church family that there is a folder full of useful addresses and contacts at the back of St Mary's.  It is aimed at helping anyone seeking information about services available locally.  Please feel free to browse at your leisure, but return it afterwards for others to access.  We hope you find it helpful.

3.  Strawberry Teas

Strawberry Teas will be served on Saturday 22nd July between 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm at Wigginton Church. See posters for further details.

4.  A settlement has been reached, following an insurance claim over problems with the drains in front of church. The result is that new drainage will be installed on a date to be agreed. We hope that there will be minimal disruption when it happens -more details to follow. A copy of the new layout can be seen at the back of church. One area of concern is the garden area where there are memorials and possible burial of ashes. Every care will be taken by the company who are specialists in this field, and a plan is in place should any burials be encountered. The PCC would like families connected to any of these to be aware of the work and would like help to do this. If you know of anyone, could you please pass on this information?

5.  Two training sessions on ‘Dementia Awareness’ have been arranged.  These will be given by Diane Petty, a volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Society.  The two sessions will be the same and everyone is welcome to come to whichever is convenient for them.  They will be on: Thursday 10th August 2017 in St Mary’s church hall 7.00 – 8.30 pm and Tuesday 5th September 2017 in St Nicholas church hall 2.00 pm – 3.30 pm.  Please sign up on the list at the back of church if you plan to come to one of these sessions.
