**  DEMAND FOR THE FOODBANK HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED

DURING THE PANDEMIC  **

THE FOODBANK COLLECTION POINT has been relocated to Catherine’s house, just inside the gate at Linnards on the Little Green. Foodbank clients need your practical items, such as washing up liquid, toothpaste, cereal, ketchup, long life milk, tinned rice pudding and custard, tinned vegetables, sponge puds, noodles, pasta and loo rolls. However, all donations are very welcome. Please give Catherine a ring if you need anything collected. Thank you for your generosity!

VACANCY FOR PARISH SAFEGUARDING OFFICER
St Michael’s is seeking a safeguarding enthusiast to advise us on all things safeguarding.  Although a relatively small parish, we view this as a vital voluntary role for our church community and our wonderful Safeguarding Officer of many years, Mary Straker, is wanting to step down.  She is very happy to shadow and help and the Guildford Diocese also has an excellent mentoring scheme to provide an experienced PSO to work alongside as a ‘buddy’. Interested in finding out more?  Contact Catherine Cobley on 481234 or 07947 032210.
