UK Energy who have two active electricity transformers in the area which is in the front of our property will be maintaining the area this week. It is used as a playground by local students

Anti-Social Behaviour

We are being plagued by irresponsible actions relating to our buildings For example, last Monday there were 14 students ‘rampaging’ between 3.30 and 4pm in the front. 4 had climbed onto the roof and one was walking around and throwing pebbles off the roof .Their rubbish, cans bottles cigarette butts etc had to be cleared up. Parishioners walking their dogs would be welcome to come along around that time!

We have a dream
that one day we shall see
a world of justice
truth and equity
where children of the slaves
and of the free
will share the banquet
of community.
