Food for our little friends — Don’t forget to keep your cooked food scraps, fruit peelings, tea leaves and coffee grounds for the parish worm farms. (No citrus, dairy or meat). You can still drop this off outside the office — during office hours. If you would like some worm castings for your garden you can leave a bucket or bag at the rectory with your details. Our little fertilizer factories have been doing a wonderful job and the fruit of their labours is now available.
Any notices for the service booklet will need to be submitted to the Parish Office email by Wednesday evening at the latest. This is so we can post out the weekly service booklet earlier.
