WASHING FACILITIES: We need to think about fund raising to make our washing facilities more acceptable to us all. At the moment we do not have Disable facilities and Male and Female facilities either. It is time we had them and so we need to fund raise to build them. Donations will be very kindly accepted and we do thank everyone who has donated towards many of the alterations we have done on our Church.
