CONCERT PIANO: the PCC have agreed to purchase a new baby grand piano and an archdeacon’s faculty has been issued giving us permission to introduce the piano into church. The total cost of the piano is £10,600, a saving of over £3,000 on the r.r.p. The piano will enhance our position as a superb concert venue in town and could be used for school groups as well as worship. The PCC have agreed to meet at least 50% of the costs using part of a legacy left by the late Sue Clark, also grants will be applied for. If you would like to personally contribute to the cost of the piano the Rector or Churchwardens would be pleased to receive your donation. Any gift will be recorded in the Book of Gifts.
