It's the Parish Annual General Meeting tonight. So come along and find out how the last year went, the plans for the future, and to meet the new Chairman of the Parish Council, Gerard Barden. The meeting takes place in the parish hall after the 6.30pm Mass. Be there (and, for a change, it shouldn't even clash with any major sporting event!). If you'd like to help out on the Parish Council, please come along - we'd be delighted to have some new faces.
