The Parish Outing to Norwich and East Ruston Vicarage gardens on Thursday 20th July was enjoyed by all. It was supported financially by the Community Centre to keep the cost to £25, which covered coach travel by Greys of Ely, a guided tour of the Cathedral and entrance fees for the very impressive Gardens. Despite a less than perfect weather forecast, it stayed mainly dry and warm. Many thanks to Sue Payne who organised this church and community event and to our very helpful coach driver Colin.
Reroofing the Small Hall: we are unable carry out this necessary improvement due to an objection from the owner of a neighbouring property. As the work can only be done in August without interrupting classes and activities, nothing can now be done in 2017. We will go ahead with some small improvements, such as increasing the number of power sockets and changing one of the overhead lights. Redecorating the foyer will also have to be deferred.
