ELECTORAL ROLL ALERT!!!!!!! ST MARY’S AND ST LAWRENCE Due to trying to get the forms out too quickly and modern technology the forms given out and posted last week did not have the Church of England official form and nowhere ‘to declare that your answers were true’. I apologise for this especially to the people who received their forms and have completed them. I will try to hand the extra form out this week but if you do not get one please collect it from the back of the church, entitled APPLICATION FOR ENROLMENT ON THE CHURCH ELECTORAL ROLL. It will not take long to fill in. It is very short. People receiving them today will find them correct. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to ask me, the Clergy, or the Office. Please try to complete your forms as quickly as possible and hand them to me or the Benefice Office. Many thanks, Marion Hyde, Electoral Roll Officer.
