School Governor: There is a vacancy for a foundation governor at St Francis School.  If you are interested, please speak to Fiona Grove or Sarah.
Free to a Good Home:  The Electronic Keyboard originally used for Services in St Francis’ Church is available free to a good home.  The instrument is in good working order, but is missing the roll top cover to the keyboard, and has a couple of small chips missing from the edge of a key.  An ideal instrument for a young person to develop an interest in music.  Please contact Phil Watts (Church Treasurer) for a viewing and discussions on transportation.
