Tower Strengthening Work
Wellington City Council has approved the building consent for strengthening work on St Mary’s Tower and our contractor will start on 7 June.  It is intended, and has been assessed as safe, to keep using the rest of St Mary’s over the four weeks the work takes.  Between now and the start date we will be working with the groups that use St Mary’s to confirm how we can clear the area needed and how they can keep using St Mary’s as work proceeds.  Thank you for your ongoing support of this important strengthening work.   
Property Sub Committee

Welcome lunch for Luke and Ian and their families.  Sunday 12 June following the 10.30 service.  Bring a plate of food to share and come down to 74 Friend St, for some time to catch up with each other and eat!  If you can only pop in for a short while, it would still be lovely to see you.  The plan is to have a bouncy castle for the kids too!!!  
Everyone is invited from either services to come along any time from
12.15 pm.  Please help spread the word and let people you meet during the week know!  Any queries contact the Harvey-Greens 021 124 5471 or harveygreenfamily@gmail.com
