Happy Easter everyone from Deacon Don and myself.  Thank you all for your cards, gifts and prayers.  We really appreciate them all.  A special thank you from us all to Margaret and Ken Swift who have done the Livestream at Buxton over the present 3 month lockdown period and to Brian and Jacob who have done the same at Chapel.  Thanks to all our creative team too, Lesley and Ivana at Buxton and Deacon Don, Marie, Barbara and Jackie at Chapel.  Special thanks to Anne for the really beautiful flowers at Chapel.

The Aid to Yemen alone will be reduced from £164 million to £87 million – 40%.  Ex-cabinet Minister Austin Mitchewll says 100,000 people will die because of the cuts.  Cafod Director, Christine Allen said “Plans to cut the Overseas Aid Budget signals our government is turning it’s back on the needy of the world”.  Please have a look at the more detailed petition click to read and write to Robert Largan MP, at 18 Market Street, Whaley Bridge, SK23 7LP or email
