The online services will still continue too on Sunday mornings with children's at 9.30am and at 10am Youtube livestream service.

Full details can be found on the website.

JUST a note that you may have heard from your doctors' surgeries that from last week if you have to have a blood test you are required to make an appointment first you cannot just go along to Cirencester Pathology department.

There has been press info about this as well.

THIS month the 'community matters' charitable giving team in Waitrose is kindly including the local Cirencester Eating disorder support group with its funding.

The group's committee is especially pleased as a planned concert which had been organised for October this year has had to be put back to next year.

The fundraise would have been in support of the local group as well as helping towards the funding of the national helplines for BEAT.

DATE for diary - On Saturday, August 22, there will be a Car Boot at the Tavern Pub in Kemble.

Set up from 8am for sellers with buyers at 9am.

Social distancing will be kept so spaces will be limited and booters will have to book in advance.

Details for this will be given in a week or so and will be shown on the facebook page of the Tavern.
