A bit more cleaning!
In order to keep both of our churches spick and span or at least fit for human habitation, we have a small amount of paid cleaning time for St Andrew's "high traffic areas" but the rest falls to a few people who have been faithfully serving in this way for a long time and really could do with your help. For the hale and hearty: some mopping, sweeping, hoovering and wiping at both churches and for the less energetic, a little light dusting and brass cleaning at St Giles'. If we can get several people in small teams on a rota, it will only be a couple of hours per month. Please contact Debbie in the Church Office if you can help.
