Newsletter distribution
John Halford is looking for two volunteers to deliver newsletters: one for the new estate off the Offenham Road and another to deliver in Pershore and Lower Moor. The job needs doing only once every three months after publication, so it is not onerous and saves postage costs. If you think you could help with either of these roles, please contact John on 834648. 06.06.19

Website Manager
I am delighted to report that Roger Wyatt has volunteered to take over as Website Manager. He has formed a team with John Scotland, Frances Kilburn and Caroline Bagshaw. Many thanks to all four. I must also thank Campbell Anderson for all the sterling work he has done over the last couple of years, not only on the website and also on the development of our policies. 12.06.19

Website Team
Our team has started work on tidying up the website to make it more Smart Phone and Tablet friendly. You will see some changes, and things may not be where they used to be! We are also here to help everyone keep their Web Pages up to date. We recognise that, apart from basic changes to the text, this Website is far from easy to edit. If you require assistance or advice you can contact the Website Team
