With so many disruptions due to weather we try to do what we can. However we do need volunteers and, if you have any spare time however little, please feel free to come along at any other time if that would suit better. The periphery of the car park area needs regular weeding with some clipping of bushes and general tidying. You will need only a few gardening tools.

We have just a small team to keep the ball rolling and we are looking for any skills from road sweeping to weeding and shrub pruning to keep things up to scratch. If you think you can help, please contact Brian Lillis ( or 07974455305). We will be very grateful.  

Our principal need at the present time is for input for a youth page. If we had the suggestions, then we will do our best to implement them.
We do need suggestions for improvements to the site. Just because we have managed to produce a website, it does not make us professionals. So we would be very grateful for help and assistance from IT professionals with internet expertise; we will do what we can but guidance is what we need.
If you come across any ideas on other Parish websites please let us know and we will see what we can do. If you spot any errors, don’t leave us in blissful ignorance.
