School. We heard news about St.Mary's academy. The recent Ofsted inspection acknowledged improvement and found to be "good". Congratulations. The teachers are under increasing demands.
"Job" opportunities Please see the board for roles which need to be filled to spread and share the workload. Also, the church will be divided into Cleaning Zones. It is hoped that each zone will be taken on- by one/two or even a family or group of people as their responsibility to keep clean and tidy at any time which suits them.
