St James’ Church open again

From Jean Atkin:

The attempt to break-in to the vestry has been fully investigated and repairs are being planned. Meanwhile the church will again be open during the day. We enjoy welcoming visitors to our church and also know that many villagers like to “pop in” for a few minutes of peaceful reflection.

When you are strolling around the village it would help enormously if you could take time to open the church door and look inside, so that as many people as possible are seen to be going in and out of the building.
