WELCOME TO CHRISTOPHER WOOLMER, OUR NEW DIRECTOR OF MUSIC! We’re delighted that Christopher has accepted the position of DOM and organist at St Andrew’s.
Christopher was born into musical family. His grandfather was an organist, his grandmother was one of the two first women ABRSM examiners, and his mother (aged 90) still teaches the piano – all three were RCM professors.
FAREWELL ROSEMARY!  On Sunday 20th July we said a fond farewell to our dear friend Rosemary Anderson, who has moved to Faringdon, Oxfordshire to be closer to her family. 

Rosemary was baptized at St Andrew’s in 1951 and has contributed so much to the life of our church throughout the years as churchwarden, assistant sacristan, sides-person, helper at Messy Church, Contact Group volunteer, cub leader, flower arranger, Mothers’ Union member – and most of all as a cherished friend.

FLOWER ARRANGERS WANTED!
Calling all flower arrangers! We are in urgent need of more folk to come and join the flower rota. No experience is necessary, just a love of flowers. Why not come and find out more? You’re warmly invited meet the team over a cuppa at St Andrew’s at 10 am on Monday 19th July. See you then!
