ST.CATHERINES’S CHURCH : St. EID MUBARAK : This week muslims all around the world will be celebrating Eid-Ul-Adha and I would like to say a big eid mubarak to all my fellow muslims brothers and sisters, hope you all have a great day.

REMEMBERING THE FALLEN : This coming week will once again be the week of Remembrance for the fallen brave during the two world wars and other conflicts and I would urge all readers to take part in the various events taking place all over the district. We should never forget the sacrifices made by the British, allies and all those that fought for a right to live the way we live our lives today. I am very confident that by next year we will have our very own memorial for this area as I am speaking to couple of very interested sponsors and as soon as the festive rush is over I will pursue it as I believe every community should have a place where it can pay respects to its brave soldiers.
