'Do you write nicely?
Calligrapher or careful writer needed to inscribe names in the Remembrance Book at St Nicholas. Please have a look at the
book if you are interested, to see what is involved. Also, speak with Stephen if you wish. Its not difficult, but requires care
and a little patience. Normally the book is updated in October before the Memorial Service and once or twice in the year as
the need arises. Please let Jacqui or Stephen know if you are interested. Many thanks.'
