Square Corner – The future. Your views wanted!

Post date: Oct 30, 2019 9:04:02 AM

Square Corner has worked well since it reopened after refurbishment, and after generous gifts from many in Uffculme within and beyond St Mary’s, in September 2016. However, the income from hiring out rooms etc has not kept pace with expenditure – there is a shortfall of about £4,000 per year. Existing grants have covered this deficit, but these grants will run out by next summer 2020. St Mary’s Parochial Church Council has been considering the way forward, and will look to be making a decision about what happens after next summer before the end of this year.

Various options are being considered – and at the moment we certainly hope to be able to keep Square Corner running in some form, as a service to the community – but we would like to hear from people in the parish what you think would be the best way forward.

If you have any views, ideas, or suggestions, please do get in touch with the Rector, Simon Talbot (simon@thetalbots.org.uk, tel 562570) or our new Curate Gudrun Thomas (gudrun.thomas@virginmedia.com, tel 840622). Or the churchwardens Tony Kidd (Tony.kidd27@gmail.com, tel 841674) or Richard Rutty (rrutty15@aol.com, tel 839241) by 17th November.

We look forward to hearing from you!
