BUILDING DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

In recent years there has been increased community involvement at St Edward's, and the number of people visiting and using the building has increased rapidly.

GOODGYM RUNNERS

On a Tuesday evening at the end of January, our friends from “GoodGym” visited us for the third time. They moved all the chairs from the nave and gave the floor a good clean, making light work of an enormous task, and helping to maintain the ForgetMeNot Cafe Project. They also cut back bushes that were protruding through the railings, preparing the way for our new Gardening as Therapy project. Thank you once again to our marvellous friends from GoodGym. Read their report here.
