We seriously need brass players and their instruments to lead the singing so if you can make it along, please, please, please volunteer!
Next Sunday, we will be collecting the Salvation Army Gift Appeal items. These need to be collected at the start of the month so that there is time to sort and distribute them. All items should UNWRAPPED and NEW. Remember that gifts are also needed for teenagers and the aged.
