RE-STARTING SERVICES – WILL YOU BE COMING?  We would like to judge how many people are likely to attend a Sunday morning service on the 16 and 23 August . It would help greatly if you could email or ring the warden of the church you’d prefer to attend by 9 Aug, so we can work out seating and other arrangements. If there are less than 6 people, it may not be possible to have a service.

St Dochdwy’s -  Jan Cullen  jan.cullen@ntlworld.com  029 20704926

GIFT AID - HELP NEEDED We need two people to take on the tasks of Gift Aid Officer and Gift Aid Recorder. The Gift Aid Officer gathers the figures weekly and uploads data to the HMRC website quarterly. Knowledge of using spreadsheets is required. The Recorder’s job involves entering figures on a ledger and verifying them with the GA Officer. It takes about 20 mins a week plus a meeting once a quarter. Please contact Viv Liles 20712466 or the Parish Office if you can help.

REV PHYL FANNING’S RETIREMENT From the end of August Rev Fanning will retire as Presbyter on the Methodist Circuit. If you’d like to contribute to a gift, donations can be sent to Tony Farmer 21 Hickman Road Penarth, Angela Davison, 24 Baroness Place Penarth or John Jevons, 24 Augusta Road Penarth. Cheques payable to Trinity Methodist Church please.

THANKS FROM TRICIA

I cannot say how much all the messages and various kind acts have meant to me over the last few weeks.  My illness came on very suddenly and was rather a shock, but the knowledge that our friends are thinking about us, and praying for us, has made us feel truly loved and cared for.  Many thanks to you all.  Richard, Hilary and I look forward to seeing you all once we can get to services. Take care everyone and with my love. Tricia Griffiths.

FOODBANK UPDATE - The Penarth Food bank continues to be busy and the team are grateful for all the support and donations that are given. The major needs are tins of meat etc. plus cleaning and kitchen products. Please drop them off at Tabernacle Church, Plassey Street, Mon-Fri 10am-12pm. They also take school uniform – St Cyres uniform is especially in short supply – drop off as above.

TWAM PENARTH (TOOLS WITH A MISSION) – NEW PREMISES NEEDED. Penarth TWAM Unit is no longer going to be supported financially by the TWAM headquarters / organisation. They would like to keep running as a collection point, but need new premises to store items, as the lease on their current location runs out soon. If you know of a garage, cellar, room etc that they can use at minimal cost, please contact Andrew kelland@gmail.com  

**FOR INFORMATION**NEW A&E SYSTEM CAV 24/7. Anyone who feels they need a visit to A&E, but does not have a life-threatening illness or injury, should call 0300 10 20 247 where their details will be taken by a trained call handler. They will then receive a call back from a clinician within 20 minutes for urgent needs, or an hour for less urgent needs, who will "triage" the patient.

The clinician will then allocate them a slot at the Emergency Unit or Minor Injuries Unit if required. If an appointment is not needed they will be given advice on other options. Life-threatening illness or injury should still call 999.
