Australia Day services

Rakes and shovels working bee
On Thursday next, 27 January, at 10am we are having a working bee on the front lawn to remove some of the mulch under the trees to the graveyard. We hope that some more grass will grow around the canopy of the trees so that it can be mown (which isn't possible when it pops up within the mulch. Please join is and bring a rake or spade or both. We have arranged for some wheelbarrows.
The mulch is to be placed on the graves to complete the project started 18 months ago by our intrepid memorial garden gardens, Gail and Jan.
In anticipation of Xeverie's commencement as Assistant Curate, the office arrangement has been reworked. Xeverie will be in the room next to me and part of the Parish office.
The Meeting Room will now share space with the Vestry (where the sanctuary party robe prior to a service. The redecoration of this room is almost complete. Hop you head and take a peak after the services on Sunday.
