With the fitting of the new church lighting almost completed, we decided to go ahead with the annual spring clean on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th January. Five men turned up on Thursday afternoon to carry out all the cleaning requiring ladders. More dirt was brought down from the rafters and ledges than in previous years and on Friday afternoon nine members of the Friends (and two extra volunteers!) arrived to sweep, vacuum, mop and polish. By the end of the afternoon a lot had been achieved but three members returned on Saturday morning to continue the hard work polishing, cleaning the baptistry and returning everything from the vestry to the church.
Thank you to all those who gave their time and worked so hard to make the church look spic and span again!
