Volunteers: On Wednesday the 19th June there will be a cleaning of the inside of the Church, starting at 2.00 p.m.  If you would like to volunteer please come to the Church, even a half hour of your time would be appreciated.  If you could bring a hoover with you that would be very useful, the more hoovers the quicker it will be done.  It is hoped that the Church will be hoovered, the seats dusted, the gallery cleaned & hoovered and the area around the Altar hoovered and cleaned.  The crying rooms cleaned and hoovered.  If any men are free they could push back the seats to make the hoovering easier.
