Could you help your local church occasionally? A rota sytem has been running for many years to organise flowers in church and also church cleaning. We are in need of more volunteers to help on the cleaning rota in particular; perhaps two friends may like to pair up to cover a duty fortnight. Flower arrangers are also welcome, especially at Christmas, Harvest and Easter.

If you could offer any help, please get in touch with Margaret Horner at Bryan Lodge, Arkendale, 340493
