Change of Roles on PCC

At the AGM on 9th April there was a change in personnel on the PCC, with John Swan stepping down as Treasurer and Steve Barrett taking over in his place, John will continue to be a member of the PCC.

Shaun Beer has stepped down from PCC after 5 years in post.

All other members of PCC have remained in post.

Games Afternoon

The monthly Board Games sessions organised by St Peter’s in the Church Centre begin again this month but on a new day and at a new time.  February’s games challenge is on Wednesday May 15th from 2pm to 4pm.

The change will see if an afternoon session is more popular than an evening slot.  No membership is necessary, just come down to the Church Centre to spend a couple of hours playing popular board games and enjoy the company. Cost is £2 to cover refreshments.

Church Rooms Renovation – News on bid for money

The main news this month is, of course, the allocation of funding to St Peter’s from WREN, a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community projects from the Landfill Communities Fund, to refurbish the toilets, entrance hall and store room in the church centre.

We have had a lot of support for the project from the parish council, users of the church centre and local residents who all provided letters to WREN outlining the benefits the work would bring to St Peter’s and the community.

Clive Brooks is drawing up a specification for us to get quotations for the refurbishment and once we have approval from WREN the work will begin, hopefully in early spring.
