1/ St Faustina Community Health Centre in Uganda.  Our churches have supported the Centre for several years now. Providing much needed equipment for the Centre and for projects to help school children & groups in the community. Our J&P Group have liaised with Fr Sylvester, Head of the Centre, and responded to their requests for help by organising collections and transportation of goods which our parishioners have so generously donated, and which has been of great help in enabling the Centre to meet the needs of the local community.

There’s a display of photos received from Fr Sylvester showing how our support has been put to such good use. You can view the display in the main entrance of St. Mary’s church, and in Holy Family church.

If you would like to contribute to the work of St Faustina on a regular basis, or with a one-off donation, please go to their website:

3/ Live Simply Tip of the Week  No Mow May For those of you with lawns this is a national campaign to encourage people not to mow their lawns until the end of May in order to boost the flowers, and nectar, available to pollinating insects such as bees, butterflies and moths. We’re approaching May very quickly!
