First Aid Boxes

If you use anything from the first aid box or find something missing, please inform Val Hocking so she can replace items asap.

Please don't forget to log any medical incident, no matter how small, in the log book in the foyer.

The Foyer

We love to see people stay for coffee and tea after the service. Could we use the whole Foyer or the Church so that it makes it easier for those serving and should prevent accidents?
