As in previous years, six issues of the Parish News were published annually, with the subscription remaining at £5 per year for 6 copies, in effect this means that one copy per year is free of charge as the cover price for individual copies in church is £1. Changing the subscription month to April last year has made it easier for the distribution team to collect subscriptions.
The team of 18 distributors deliver 195 copies between them. 10 of those copies are taken to Kelsall Methodist Church by Mary Diggle. We are indebted to all of them for their help and hard work. The co-ordination of the distribution team is done by Douglas and Barbara Walters and we are extremely grateful to them for organising this.
Copies are also left in Wally Dutton’s Butchers, the Chemist, Doctors surgeries and Vets, and are delivered to newcomers and new houses by Margaret Durbin and Irene Skinner and John Jones as part of the welcoming newcomers initiative.
The Parish News is uploaded to the church website at the following link http://www.kelsallparishchurch.org.uk/styled-22/index.html
and twitter @stphilipskelsal, by Chris Spray. The format enables you to turn the pages with a click of the mouse, making it much easier to read online.
Grateful thanks are due to all who make contributions. We couldn’t manage to put the Parish News together without Margaret Davies collating the items and rotas, and of course the Vicar for providing his ‘View from the Vicarage’ and other items. John Diggle provides regular Outward Giving updates. Items for the Parish News and diary should be forwarded to Margaret well in advance of the deadline in order for her to pull together their pieces in good time firstname.lastname@example.org, copying in to the editors. Contributions are always welcome direct to the editors (see below).
If you know of any houses that have recently had new occupants, please take a Parish News (for free) from church and pop it through the door (or even better, take a Welcome Leaflet as well and call in and introduce St Philip’s to them!).
