After many years of organising the church cleaning rota, Wendy has taken a well earned break and handed that role to me. With the new heating system the church has a more welcoming atmosphere and seems therefore, easier to clean, and we are trying a new approach of a group clean every few months. It is proposed that in- between the BIG CLEAN there is a fortnightly rota to ensure everything stays in order. To this end a group of us met recently and beavered away removing the dust and cobwebs of the last year, which had gathered during the three lockdowns, the church having to be locked had prevented the usual regular attention. We would welcome any new recruits, as ’Many hands make light work’. If like me you find housework irksome and a chore I can assure you that it’s much more rewarding and enjoyable to work in a group, taking just one area in which to concentrate one’s efforts. And as if a gleaming brass isn’t enough of a reward there’s a slice of Liz’ delicious sponge to accompany a well earned cuppa with a chat to round off the afternoon. Please join us....and thanks for reading this far!
