 *************

St Michael’s Community Food Cupboard

The cupboard is located in the entrance to St Michael’s church, anyone who needs food may take what they need. It is not supervised and there are no restrictions at all so anyone who needs it can use it. The cupboard contains simple tinned and packaged food and is open when the church is open, between 9 and 5 every day. Donations are welcome and can simply be left in the cupboard, but please ensure all food is well in date and well packed so as not to attract mice. If you need a bit of food, or know someone who might, this could be for you.

Claydons’ Parish – please pray during the coming week for Alison, Anita, Don, Emma, Emma S,  Esme, James, Lorraine, Sue, Sybil, Trina

Remembering all who have died and their family and friends
