Mike B’s last Sun is 26 March and his leaving lunch is on Sun 2 April, 12.30pm in the church hall - please sign up in the foyer (no charge) if you would like to attend. If you would like to contribute to a leaving gift, address your envelope to ‘Brian Howells - MB gift’ - if appropriate, make cheques payable to ‘Claygate PCC’ - bring to the office by Fri 31 March. His licensing at St Lawrence with St Paul, Longridge, Preston will take place on Tuesday 2 May 7.30pm. It seems unlikely we will have sufficient numbers to hire a coach so if you are driving and could offer a lift please contact Janet in the office.
