St. Mary’s Church vandalised

The Parochial Church Council has decided with regret to close St. Mary’s Church from next Monday, following a spate of behaviour which has escalated from minor childish nuisance to an unacceptable level. Last Monday evening the Church Warden discovered that a member of the public had entered the church and defaced the main carpet in the aisle. Subsequent attempts to remove the graffiti having proved unsuccessful, the carpet will need replacement. The police will now be informed. If you have information about this incident, please let us know.

Despite this general closure, the Churches Festival commemorating those who fell in the first and second world wars will go ahead this weekend. Entry is free on Saturday and Sunday 8th – 9th September from 10am to 4pm and refreshments will be available.
