<div>NOTICES</div><div>Church Gardening:  Thank you to all who have <span style="font-size: 1rem;">helped in the last few days to tidy the church </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">grounds. Your hard work is much </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">appreciated and has made a great </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">difference.</span></div>

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">Organ Work is being undertaken to </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">complete the organ restoration. A new </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">‘rank’ of pipes – a particular stop (sound) </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">is being installed on the Swell manual. Hopefully, all will </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">be finished next week. The ‘Wurlitzer’ – the electronic </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">organ - has also been serviced.</span>

<div>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></div><div>months. Sadly he has recently developed some health <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>

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">26 Trinity St, the former verger’s house, has </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">now been sold and completion made. The </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">proceeds go the Diocese as Custodian Trustees, although </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">HT has the final decision, as Managing Trustees, as to </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">how these may be spent, in accordance with the terms of </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">the Trust. It has taken a lot of hard work to get to this </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">point, and our grateful thanks go to those who worked at </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">this end and also at the Diocesan end.</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><span style="font-size: 1rem;">please contact the parish office </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">([email protected]). Any copy for the August </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">edition to George Coles by 21 July, please.</span></div>
