Church Roof Repair - Just Giving
The roof security has now been up graded and paid for by donations from individuals and some grant money. However, we have decided to keep a Just Giving appeal open for donations to help the work of our church. Donate to St Mary’s Church Potton If giving, please be sure to check the Gift Aid box if you are a tax payer.
The roof has still not been repaired but we now have the “Go-Ahead” and the date agreed with our contractor is for the middle of May onwards. It is expected the work will take up to two months. In the meantime, we have moved the Church Choir out of the Chancel because of continuous water ingress.

Friday evening, March 3, St Mary’s Church Fundraising and Social Committee held a Games Night with a table quiz, “Play Your Cards Right” and more. For Supper, there was a delicious selection of Tapas and Desserts, all home produced. The evening went very well with everyone having fun with the games. All proceeds go to St Mary’s Church funds. Thanks go to all the food producers and organisers for yet another successful social event.
We have heard that Val who moved away from Potton last November to live near her daughter in Kent, died on December 18, only 6 weeks after her move.

She was a regular member of St Mary’s always attending the early Sunday Service. Her funeral will be held in Kent o January 11 and her Ashes will be interred in Potton in the Spring, on a date to be arranged.
