Kids’Club is planning a racing car theme for this term and we need a few items if any of you can help:

 2. Remote control cars for racing (we will be very careful with them!)

 3. A scalextric set/other racing set


If you have any of these at home and are willing to lend them to us, please get in touch with Jayne Newton on 07522 281539. Thank you!

Use of WBC rooms


Please note that all requests to use rooms in WBC must now be sent directly to the Church Office, and Sue will confirm whether the room/date is available. Please also be aware that, if the request has to be approved by the deacons, (and most do), the request must reach the office by Thursday in the week before a deacon’s meeting. Deacon’s meetings are normally held on the first Tuesday of the month, so in effect all requests must be received by the last Thursday of the month prior to the required date to avoid any disappointment.
