Do make contact with Stéphane to introduce yourselves, and/or invite him to your group/ event/ service etc. His address is: 11 The Limes, High Street, Shrewton, other details below. Please remember that he won’t be able to attend everything immediately; and that it takes one person time to remember lots of names, and how each person fits into the community. Stéphane is not normally available on Fridays.
MICRO LIBRARY/BOOK EXCHANGE
This collection of books on a pew in Shrewton, St Mary, is very popular, and as a result we are down by a few books. If you have a paperback or two you’d like to donate (they are free to people to either borrow or keep), please pop them on the pew in the north aisle (back pew nearest the door). The only rule is that this is ‘micro’, so we only ever fill one pew. Thanks.
