Parish Security

Posted

Over the last few months numerous sets of hall keys have been lent to different parishioners. If you have a set, please return them to the parish office as soon as possible.

We have had a spate of break-ins in the church complex. Last week Molly had her bag stolen from the lower sacristy. It is important that we are all security conscious especially with regards to door that should be locked when not in use.

If you see anyone acting suspiciously please let Fr Peter know. Thank you.

Parish and Community Meeting

Posted

Just before Christmas I met with the newly appointed Diocesan Fundraiser, Kelly Tattersall, who will be helping St Margaret’s raise the necessary funds to renew the hall, kitchen and lavatories. One of the better ways of approaching grant making bodies is to demonstrate that the applicant, in this case St Margaret’s Parish has consulted with the Community about the use of the Church’s assets. This is best achieved by holding an open meeting to show what the Church wishes to achieve, and to invite all existing hall users to make their views known about the hall and complex as a whole.
