It is with great sadness that we have to announce that the HCPT pilgrimage to Lourdes this Easter has been cancelled due to the spread of Coronavirus.

This obviously affects Group 101. Phil and Margaret Hall would like to assure everyone who has supported Group 101 in any way that all money raised will be used for the purpose intended i.e. taking special needs children to Lourdes.

This may, possibly, be later this year, or Easter 2021.

We would like to thank everyone at St Paul's for your continued support.

God bless, Phil and Marge.


Donations for the foodbank can still be left in the church entrance hall.

The church is open every afternoon between 2pm and 6pm.

Currently the stocks of Tinned Spaghetti, Drinking Chocolate, Long Life Juice, Cereals and Dog Food are running low.

Also a special request for Easter Eggs.
