Eco-tips: Draughts waste a lot of energy by losing heat. One quick and relatively cheap win is to put a brush or seal on your doors to prevent air escaping round the edges. Letterboxes and keyholes also lose heat and can be covered too.

West End Alterations: The ‘enabling works’ , putting in the internal and external drainage systems, water supply and electrics for the proposed kitchen and accessible toilet and replacing/moving  radiators to make space for the next phases are well underway. St Michael’s PCC is not planning on a fund-raising campaign for the building works, but any donations towards this will be gratefully received. 

The Food Bank is appealing for:

Pasta Sauces, Tinned Fruit, Tinned Vegetables,Tinned Tomatoes, Long life milk, Long life fruit juice. Please put donations in the box at the back of church.

Eco-tips: Be pedantic about your recycling! Think about every item you put in the bin; should it go to landfill? Loo rolls come on card tubes, sweets come in foil or paper wrappers, apple cores can be composted and most packaging can be recycled now.
