Life continues to be on hold

Life continues to be on hold at the moment as Gordon’s mother is still very ill. This means a reduction in meetings and activities and a lot of travelling and time spent at mums (Lillian Curley) bedside in the hospice. She has recently had two strokes and last week her health deteriorated badly, it is now just a matter of time. Your prayers are appreciated for the family at this time.
