Notices – any items for the monthly notices sheet should be in the hands of the secretary no later than the last Wednesday in the month. This is the best way to either highlight forthcoming events or to take the opportunity to report back on things which have taken place.  With oral intimations taking up more and more time on a Sunday morning, please try to think ahead and get details to the Secretary for including in the notices sheet instead
