St Mary's Church has been overwhelmed by the response to its appeal for donations to the local foodbank.

Unfortunately a number of items have been out of date and will need to be destroyed as the foodbank will not permit these to be distributed.  If you would check the date on any contribution we would be grateful

Thank you for your continuing support
