Help the environment and St Mary’s

A reminder to save energy

Readers of the newsletter will all be aware of the sharp increase in the price of gas and electricity over the last few years – I certainly found the first statements after the winter period quite a shock.

St Mary’s has to face this too and the PCC has budgeted the huge sum of £9,600 to meet gas and electricity costs in 2014.

But on a warm Saturday afternoon at the end of May the heating in the church was blazing away and the hot water heater for the kitchen was switched on when there had been no services or events on the premises for the best part of two days!

So, if you have to switch on the heating, please turn it off again and don’t assume that someone else will – such a simple way to help the environment and St Mary’s.

Thank you.
