Helping local families with Utilities and Food

At our Parish Council meeting we decided to earmark local families which would be most in need of help this winter. It was proposed that depending on the amount of money raised by the parishioners we will then decide how many families we can help.

We thank those who gave so generously to our collection, the monies raised where in the region of £1,000 pounds at Christmas, many thanks indeed.
