NEWS of a PHOTOGRAPHIC OPPORTUNITY!

For many years now, each year Holy Trinity Church has sold popular Christmas Cards, which have been based upon recycled cards from the previous year, painstakingly saved by Annemarie and Alec Hester, and subsequently reworked by them and the Craft Group into new ones for the coming year.

The service was followed by an Italian themed Harvest Lunch.  Thank…

For comparison, we were showing a surplus of CHF 1,500 at the same time…
