NOTICES & Dates for your Diaries

Toilet Twinning – Please support the ‘Toilet Twinning project which provides improved sanitation, clean water and hygiene education in poor communities to help stop children under the age of  5 from dying as a result of dirty water and poor sanitation. When you visit the Chapel, please pop into one of the loos in order to put some money into the collecting boxes.  Every time we collect £60 a toilet in a poor community will be twinned with ours .We’re aiming to have a string of them across the world!

Coffee Hour – During the month of April, I hope to fill a rota for 2 months – until end of June – for the ‘coffee hour’ after Sunday morning services. I enjoy this activity and now is the time to pass this opportunity on to others, after the last Sunday in April, when I shall step down from ‘coffee hour’ activity. It’s an enjoyable and important service. Please let me know if you would like to take an ‘occasional turn at the urn’. Thanks, Margaret Perry.

Chapel Poetry Group – The poetry group meets on Monday 4th May, at 7:30pm in Basement Cottage 3.  Anyone who likes to write, read, share, or just listen to poetry is welcome.  For more information contact George Appleby on o2o 7424 9733 or gappleby [at] talktalk.net
