Annual passes for free parking between 10.45 and 12.45 on a Sunday are available from the Churchwarden (Peter Breed) or Church Council Secretary (Pam Young).  We also remain grateful to West Lane Methodist Church which lets anyone without a pass, or who cannot find space in the Parsonage Car Park, use spare places in their Car Park on any Sunday morning.

New Curate coming
