Paperback books wanted to sell on the stall in the lounge and at Thought for the Day in aid of church
funds. If you have any, they will be very welcome.
Keyholders If you no longer require your keys for the church, could you please return them to me. The keys for the
church are expensive to replace so any surplus ones will cut down any unnecessary expense. Thank you. Bob Owen.

Refreshment List A new list for the coming three months is on the hatch door (kitchen/lounge). Please add your name to
the list for the dates you are able to help. More help is needed and if those who are able could do two Sundays in the 3 month period,
s that would relieve those who have to regularly step in to cover dates not covered. Please try to help so that this time of fellowship
after services can continue.
