Redecoration of St Andrew's church - From start to finish




Your Sorrow Shall be Turned into Joy:
Cottam Chapel in Penal Times

After extensive research, one of our parishioners, Bill Shannon,  has produced a soft backed book entitled ‘Your Sorrow Shall be Turned into Joy: Cottam Chapel in Penal Times’.  He is generously donating all proceeds to the redecoration fund. The price is  £5.00 from St Andrew’s church. (To obtain a copy by post add £1.50 for UK p&p).  To contact Bill, please either telephone 01772 709187 or email bill_shannon@msn.com


Dangerous Parking

The bend at the junction of Hoyles Lane and Sandy Lane is very dangerous and you are requested not to park there when attending any of the church services.

Unfortunately, for various reasons, it isn’t always possible to cone the area so your co-operation would be appreciated as safety is a big concern.

Please park on the straight stretches of the two lanes only.
