Eco Tip: Have your food shop delivered

Home delivery is like the public transport of groceries. Instead of having 20 odd cars make their way to the supermarket – one van drives around delivering to everyone in the area. Additionally, it means you’re less likely to impulse buy which can help to reduce any waste food.

We wish all those going on the Circuit Holiday a refreshing time with friends and good fellowship.


We have a loop system to assist the hard of hearing Please turn hearing aid to position ‘T’

Items for the notice sheet to Theresa by Thursday noon, please preferably

by email to clericalsw@outlook.com or 01326 561140 Please keep emails as brief as possible

Coffee next Sunday Cynthia Treloar, Cynthia Holman, Katherine Treseder, Janet Martin
