There is always work for the caretaker. Out early as the sun rises over hill spreading salt before the Sunday morning service at 10am. Biting cold outside but hopefully warm in the Church.

Helpers taking a break during a clean-up of the Church Grounds
The digger might help but the shovels and hard work are still needed.
Why not provide tray bakes, make wheaten bread or preparing a desert for some of the Church events?
Why not help with the dishes, you will find it very therapeutic?
Our notice board needs regular updating.
