The parish of Potton is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of St. Albans’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.


Please keep us in your prayers, as we wish everybody all they wish themselves in 2021, remembering the inspirational and aspirational words from "O Holy Night", <span style="font-size: 1rem;">“A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices, </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn”</span>
