Newspaper Collection in Aid of Church Funds

Old unwanted newspapers are collected in aid of Church Funds.

There are two containers located at the rear of Lower Rectory Farm. One is for storage of all unwanted newspapers plus magazines and junk mail, and the second is for cardboard - there must however be no plastic. Please tie the newspapers etc. into separate bundles and place them in the appropriate section of the containers.

Access to the containers is always available and so please consider donating your unwanted newspapers/magazines – it is a very easy way for much needed funds to be raised for the Church.

Anyone unable to deliver their newspapers/magazines to Rectory Farm can call Henry Clark (261284) who will arrange for them to be collected.

Please leave the newspapers out ready for collection on the following dates:-

    The collection is done on TUESDAYS:-   21st November;  5th & 19th December;  2nd January
