NEW COMMUNITY FACILITES @ ST JOHN'S
To view further details please click on the tab "Community Facilities Building" from the home page
16/11/12 - The latest news is that money raised now stands around £94,000 - hopefully more donations will be received taking us nearer to our total target - see below.
Planning permission has been given for a building to be constructed on the edge of the cricket pitch. This will house 3 toilets, including a disabled toilet with a baby changing facility. There will also be a meeting room / green room. The building will be in the style of the existing cricket pavillion so that it blends in.
The work, at an estimated cost of £108,00, will hopefully begin late September 2012. So far the Parish has raised over half of the cost but now needs help in raising the balance.
On Saturday 29th September 2012 we are holding a Gift Day at St John's Church from 11.00 am to 3.00 pm when the Rector and other Church Members will be there to receive donations.Please come along and have a cup of tea or coffee to see the plans in detail.
Alternatively you can send a donation to: St John's Development, The Parish Office, St Saviour's Church, 1 Park Road, Hagley DY9 0NS. Please make cheques payable to "Hagley PCC St John's Development A/C". If you can make the donation as Gift Aid then please include a note saying:
Please regard my donation as a "Gift Aid Donation" - I confirm that I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax for the current year that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities I donate to will reclaim on my gift: I understand that the charity will reclaim 25p on every £1 that I have given. Please add your Full Name, Full Address, Date and Signature.
We do appreciate any gift you are able to make.
