<div>This week’s notice sheet has had to be <span style="font-size: 1rem;">prepared a week in advance. We have no </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">administrator at present, and so it is produced </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">by Fr Julian who was obviously away last week </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">at Walsingham. So if some information is not included, </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">that’s why!</span></div><div>

Church Gardening Wendy Burge is very <span style="font-size: 1rem;">kindly co-ordinating the tidying-up and </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">maintenance of the church grounds, with a </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">regular session on the first Saturday of the </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">month, 2-4pm. Next Saturday will be the first, so please </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">come along and help! The grounds are the ‘shop-front’ </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">of the church, so if they don’t look cared for, then… </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">Thank you, Michael Paul, who has made a back-breaking </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">start to weeding the paving at the entrance.</span>

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

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">Organist It was with very great sadness that </span><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 playing Sunday will be July 18.</span>

<div>Outlook: The Parish Magazine for July has <span style="font-size: 1rem;">been circulated to those on our email list; if </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">you would like one and not on our email list,</span></div><div>please contact the parish office <span style="font-size: 1rem;">([email protected]).</span></div><div>

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>
