ACOUSTIC TILES
You will be pleased to hear that our appeal for funds towards the purchase of acoustic tiles for the large hall has reached over £2000. We are hoping to have these special tiles put on the ceiling of the hall to help with the noise factor there. Over the years the level of background noise of people chatting has been a probem mainly due to the lack of carpet or heavy curtains to deaden the noise. This makes it very difficult for many especially if they have a hearing loss. The cost of these tiles is not inconsiderable and it was felt that this cost ought to be met by extra giving and not by using the church offering. If you would like to make a contribution to this fund please put your donation in an envelope marked "Tiles" and put in the office or in the collection bag. We anticipate that the total cost will be in the region of £6000 and all donations will be gratefully received.

PROPERTY PROBLEMS
If you are aware of a property problem such as a leaking pipe or broken tap please make a note of it in our new BIG RED BOOK which will be found on the shelf at the back door. The property chairman , Peter White, will check this each week and do his best to get the problem fixed! However things like dust and rubbish collection remain the responsibility of us all! We do not have a rubbish collection at all so if you see a black sack waiting to go to the tip and you are able to remove it please do! Likewise if you spot an area needing a quick dust please use a duster from the big cupboard in the foyer and deal with it. The Lord's house belongs to us all and we need to look after it just like our own house.
