Donations of Church Centre items

We have had various items of furniture, electrical equipment and tools etc. left in the church centre.

Although we are very grateful, for various health and safety reasons some donations may not be suitable.

All electrical items have to be PAT tested before they can be put into general use in the church centre.   So, if you have things to donate, we would be most grateful if you would speak to Sue Sampson, or ring the office before you bring them along.

Many thanks.
