An Urgent Priority - A Treasurer for the PCC

Our PCC urgently needs a new Treasurer. Several people are already helping or have offered to help with the Treasury function including doing the bookkeeping, banking, billing and fee administration, payroll, cheque writing and Gift Aid administration, but we still need someone willing to be Treasurer and oversee the finance operations and prepare accounts and reports for the PCC. This is a crucial role, please pray that the right person will be found. Please speak to Keith for further details.

Parish Walk

Monday June 25th 7pm The Flower Pot, Aston.

Please join us for the VENETIA WORTHINGTON MEMORIAL WALK.

Venetia was a founder member of the group, being present at the very first walk

in June 2004. Thereafter she was a most loyal and appreciative participant until increasing frailty prevented her from walking. Venetia suggested that we should have a walk from the FLOWER POT in June 2007 and it has become a permanent fixture in our planning.

Do come and join us to share our memories of our stalwart companion.
