Cleaning the Church – upstairs and down! Wanted! Men and women willing to spend a little time keeping St Ninian’s in tiptop condition. We have had to reduce our church cleaning teams to five, each with a team leader who every fifth week allocates areas to each member of the team to be completed whenever within that week they can manage. Because of very small numbers downstairs volunteers are called on every third week to clean the hall, kitchen or toilets. It would really help to spread the load if we had more volunteers, so please contact the sacristy if you can help in any way – or send an email to Ninian@saintninians.org.uk An enormous thank you to those who are already playing their part but please let your team leader know if you are unable to do your task for any reason.
