First of all we are glad to say that, following our appeal to members and the publicity given to our problems in the press, we are now confident that we will be able to fill all three vacant posts on our committee at our next AGM on 21st November (7.30 pm in West Mersea Parish Church Hall). This means we can continue with our fundraising and help to support the Parochial Church Council in their work in ensuring the preservation of this lovely building for the foreseeable future.
In other news we will no longer be manning the Friends’ office at the Parish Church on Thursdays. We have provided this facility since The Friends were first formed but since it is rarely visited by members or general enquirers we have decided it is now time to discontinue the facility. However, the Church administrators have said The Friends are welcome to continue to use its facilities for photocopying etc, whenever the need arises.
