The Rector writes …..
The Annual Easter Vestry will take place in the Parish Hall at 7:30pm on Thursday 9th May. At this public meeting, which is open to everyone, the already approved 2018 parish accounts will be adopted. I will speak about our parish life in the year gone by, what has been achieved during that time and thanking all those who have been instrumental in the running of our parish. The Church Wardens and next year’s Select Vestry will be voted in by those gathered who are currently registered as Vestry Persons. But whether you are registered as a voter in the parish or not, why not come along to the Easter Vestry anyway? This is your parish and it’s always a good idea to have some knowledge of what is being done in your name.
I guarantee you that you won’t be pushed into any job that you don’t want to take on.
If you haven’t attended an Easter Vestry so far in your life, why not try it this year – indeed you may surprise yourself by enjoying it! I really hope to see you there.. ‘
