ST. LUKE’S S.V.P,
during the ‘lockdown’ we have been making personal telephone calls to people living alone and in addition, during the good weather have been able to make face to face calls carried out at a safe distance door to pavement/path. We provide a ‘listening ear’ and a friendly chat. If you have a relative, friend or neighbour who would like to be contacted in this way please leave their details at the Parish House.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY.
The smartest person we know is the one who asks our advice.
