Annual church meetings 2015

Barbara Williams and Michael Forsdike were once again elected to be churchwardens to serve for another year. Ian Forster, already a co-opted member, was formally elected to the PCC on which two vacancies remain. The existing Sidesmen will stand again for the next year with the addition of a new volunteer, Sarah Cook.

There are now 52 church members registered on the Electoral Roll. Peter Jones will continue to be our Electoral Roll Officer.

Michael Forsdike reviewed the church finances and said that the church lived within its means last year, with an income of £54,121 and an expenditure of £49,525. However, we were only able to pay a sum of £30,456 towards our parish share assessment of £41,419. Pat Herrington continues as Church Treasurer and Jenny Day will continue as Honorary Auditor.

Churchwarden Barbara Williams gave an informative talk about the work done to the fabric of the church and in the churchyard over the past year. It is thought that the persistent damp patch on the southern internal wall of the church is caused by a leaking gutter. This coming year the Quinquennial Inspection is due to take place.

Barbara Williams thanked Duncan for his continuing service to Trinity church, Trinity School and other local organisations over the past year for which there was much applause.
