Many residents will have seen that the white church steeple has been re-clad over the last few weeks, an activity that has really stretched the efforts of the PCC members (particularly the departing Treasurer, David Green) in obtaining the necessary funding for this work.

It may have been noted, however, that the illuminated cross on top of the steeple is NOW illuminated. The LED system has now been replaced and should once again remind those who see the cross shining through the dark why it is there, particularly those who are familiar with the link between its erector and Stow Maries Aerodrome - Claude Ridley.

Anyone who welcomes the return of the cross to a working entity is invited to make a contribution towards the cost of its repair and future maintenance.  All donations will be gratefully received. Please post in an envelope clearly marked CROSS REPAIR to Brian Townsend, Treboeth House, Church Lane, Stow Maries, CM3 6SJ, either by hand or Royal Mail. Thank you.
