Cleaning Rota

The cleaning rota comes to an end in a few weeks time. We really could do with a few more volunteers to help clean the church once in a while. Full instructions are given and the job takes about an hour between two people. Currently volunteers are on once every two months. A few more volunteers would make a duty less frequent. Church is usually cleaned on Saturday mornings but could be done on Fridays by arrangement.
