Matthew Butler Books - "As part of the great campaign to Cheer Us All Up I have put two boxes of books for sale at the back of the Church. (The books are now in the Church porch while the good weather lasts). £2 each with money for St Mary's. Spread the word! - there are some interesting things including Badminton and Gloucestershire books. If it proves popular I can replenish the stocks.
I should add that all the evidence is that the Virus cannot survive on books! But of course, wash your hands when you get home after having a look."

Books, donated by Claire Broomsgrove - Claire has put 2 boxes of her mother's books in the church porch. She has plenty and will keep the boxes regularly topped up. Donations to the church please.
