Rev. Liz Gibson will be here for two weeks from Wednesday 5th and will be delighted to meet parishioners (of any persuasion or none); please do not hesitate to get in touch.  A Board of Management meeting will be held, to which all are welcome – items to be discussed will be the need to replace the two western windows in the parish church and the financial implications (the windows are large and will be very expensive).  Those present will also address plans to erect a modest windmill on the hill above the glebe; it is hoped that the initiative would be financially viable and it is intended to support responsible “stewardship” of the environment.  On the same front, we are about to enter Year 4 of the Glebe Environmental Project – the bracken has come under some form of control and the fencing seems to be adequate at last so three Highland Cattle will be purchased (and retained) as part of the Management Plan.  We are most grateful to Joe and to other local farmers who have generously offered to assist, particularly as regards over-wintering.  Anybody wishing to volunteer with fencing, bracken-cutting, hazel coppicing or any aspect of species recording is invited to contact Kevin Byrne
