ITEMS  FROM  THE  PARISH  TEAM  MINUTES  HELD  IN  MAY

  • It was reported that the numbers using the Ring and Ride service has diminished to the point where it is likely to be withdrawn.  Sharon Teefey pointed out that the situation could well change after the closure of St. Mary’s as there may well be parishioners from that end of the parish who might wish to avail themselves of the service.  She agreed to look into the matter and work as a kind of coordinator for the service. Any parishioner wishing to use the service should contact the Parish Office (0161 624 4834) and their name and contact details will be given to Sharon who will then liaise with Ring and Ride to make the arrangements.
  • Christine Wilson agreed to co-ordinate the cleaning of the kitchen in the Parish Centre. It was agreed to amend the Terms and Conditions for use of the Parish Centre.  In future all entertainment and music must end at 11.00pm. Those organizing the use of the Centre are to be reminded that expenses to parish and school are incurred when the Centre is used, and although no charge is made for the use of the room, a donation in the region of £25.00 would be quite acceptable.
