Safe After Church Fellowship

My thanks to Sue, Dorothy and helpers for providing and serving drinks and cake in the church hall last Sunday.  If you can help one Sunday please let them know.
To keep us safe they are wearing masks and gloves while serving.
WE ASK YOU to keep them and each other safe.
1  Please use a hand sanitiser as you enter the hall.
2 Please wear your face mask until you have collected your refreshments.
3  Please use the outdoor space if the weather is suitable.
4  Please maintain physical distance from each other in the hall.
5  Please remove masks for eating and drinking.
We will keep doors and windows open and ensure the hall is safe to use so that we can all feel safe and enjoy fellowship together. Thankyou.
