  1. Choral Evensong was held on Sunday 10th March with the Deeside Choristers. There were counted 27 singers and on a snowy night, the church was not only full, but warm. Shows the benefit of having so many bodies in it (and keeping the heating on all day). But the choristers could not have moved and delighted us as they did without the efforts of others. Warren and Sue put the chairs out and back, Jane read the lessons, Win and Daphne made coffee and washed up. Thanks to all, but we have to note that, as ever, there’s a small group doing a disproportionate share of support. If people who are willing to help with evening events please contact us. We’re doing more evening events now, and that’s a good thing, but it mustn’t become a burden on the same few people.
  2. When the snow was heavy and we wondered if things might be cancelled, I was ready to send out an email to let you all know. Email is a useful tool for all sorts of things. Please contact us if you would like to be included on our email distribution list.
