Walsingham Pilgrimage: Because of the pilgrimage <span style="font-size: 1rem;">this week by Fr Julian and members of the parish, </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">there will be no services here at Holy </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">Trinity Tues-Fri.  The Saturday masses at </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">10 and 6 will be as usual.</span>

Lockdown:  Following the Government’s <span style="font-size: 1rem;">announcement last Monday, we will </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">effectively be under the same restrictions as </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">before, with the exception of any weddings in churches. </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">The Bishop of London, the ‘Recovery Group’s’ chair is </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">working hard to have reconsideration of </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">choral/congregational singing, but at the moment it’s </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">business as usual.</span>

FREE Barbeque! Obviously there can be <span style="font-size: 1rem;">no rejoicing (see above), but there will </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">be at some stage. Sorry that the </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">celebration has had to be postponed.</span>

Organist: It was with very great sadness that <span style="font-size: 1rem;">we heard that Stephen Price, our organist is </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">having to resign from his post after just a few </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">months. Sadly he has recently developed some health </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">problems. We are very sorry for him and assure him of </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">our prayers. His last Sunday will be July 25.</span>

Congratulations to Pete and Liz Hathway who <span style="font-size: 1rem;">are celebrating their Golden Wedding </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">anniversary this coming Saturday, 26th. We </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">assure them of our love and prayers on this very special </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">occasion.</span>

Free Sunflower Seeds! Just to cheer us all up, <span style="font-size: 1rem;">Morrisons are giving away free sunflower seeds </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">available at the tills.</span>
