Will take place after Sunday Mass in the Parish Centre on April 29th.  We shall give a summary of the work of the past year or so and ask for your suggestions for this next year.  We have 4 members, Sue Hardman, Cath and Sophie Etchells and Anne Cleary, standing down so we need 4 new people to replace them.  Might you?  We are hoping that lots of people come along and have their say about the direction and activities of the parish.  There will be sausage baps, tea, coffee and other treats to tempt you and it will be participative and not just listening to speeches.  Hope you’ll come!  If you know you are able to attend please give your name at the back of church to assist with catering.   
Margaret Swift has compiled and circulated a new Readers Rota.  Saturdays are every 5 weeks and Sundays every 7 weeks with two people reading at each Mass.  Thank you all for your participation and co-operation.  If you can’t make it please ask someone else to replace you.
At the moment there are two boilers which heat the Presbytery.  One is almost 60 years old and the other has problems.  I asked the Parish Pastoral Council for their advice last year and they suggested I replace them.  There are an assortment of different metal radiators which are now unacceptable for health and safety reasons so there are 24 radiators to be replaced too.  When the plumbers came to inspect they suggested they take out the 4” diameter pipe too, along with the 3 gas fires which are obsolete.  In all the bill will come to £19,200 including VAT.  We have that amount in the bank so the PPC advised me to go ahead and the plumbers are presently here. 
Welcome back.  The children are meeting at 9.45 a.m. today.  Parents are meeting in the Parish Centre this Wednesday, April 18th at 7pm.  Please make every effort to be there as we shall be making arrangements for First Communion Day on Sunday, May 13th.
