St Pio - The monthly meeting of the friends of St Pio will be held next Thursday night May 2nd in the Abbey at 8pm.
Arrival of Swallows - The first of the swallows were seen flying over the river in the village last Tuesday. With the advent of the swallows we always associate the nearness of our Summer.
Sympathy - Sympathy is extended to the husband and family of the late Denise Beere, North Carolina, U.S.A.
