Practical Help Required
From time to time, we have practical tasks which we need help with. These tasks may include moving heavy items, taking things to the tip, building furniture, fixing things etc. We are looking to put a list together of people who are gifted in this area, who we can call on to help when required. If you would be interested in serving Platt in this practical way, please contact Jo (Jo[at]plattchurch.org) in the office to have your name added.
