Vicars have a day off too !

Veronica's day off is a Monday. The Church Wardens  kindly request that we respect this and avoid disturbing or phoning her on a  Monday unless it is an emergency. It is difficult for to her to get time off with living where she works. If we are mindful of Monday's,  Veronica will get her time off, she will then be rested and always ready for our needs for the rest of the week.

  Many thanks for your consideration.

Higher Wych School Charity

The charity supports the educational needs of young people in the township of Iscoyd (essentially Whitewell Parish). In recent months, young people have received financial help with music lessons on piano, flute, and cornet. The Trust has awarded grants to students travelling abroad to further their education. It has provided assistance to students taking up further education at University. It has paid towards additional coaching for students at school and it has even helped someone obtain their HGV licence. If you are a young person who is either living in the Whitewell Parish, or who has a strong connection to it, you too may be eligible for help. In the first instance you should approach Mr Philip Godsal, the Chairman of the Trustees.
