Our primary fund raiser for 2016 will be a “Gift Day” which is scheduled for Sunday 18th September. As explained at the Easter General Vestry meetings of recent years, additional fund raising is necessary to ensure that the Parish finally clears the Bank Loan and start repaying the interest free parishioner loans utilised in the major refurbishment of the Rectory and the revamping of the parish storage facilities in 2008/2009. In addition, following up on last year’s R.C.B. requested report, more urgent and essential maintenance work on the Church building and grounds has been identified and some of this work has
now been completed. This unexpected expenditure has had a negative effect on our cash flow. We would therefore encourage all parishioners to give as generously as possible to our “Gift Day” appeal during the month of September.
All parishioners should receive correspondence regarding this fund raiser by the end of August/early September.
