Today I presided at the Parish Mass at St. Augustine’s Rush Green, Father Martin read the Gospel, preached and concelebrated and Pamela led our Intercessions which included a sung response.After Mass a card was presented to Ken who is currently exploring his possible vocation to the Sacred Priesthood. He currently attends a church in the Evangelical Tradition and the DDO wanted him to experience Anglo-Catholic worship which he has been doing for a number of weeks. He leave us, with our prayers, as he continues this exploration.
Following a meeting at the Town Hall a compromise has been reached over the proposed Parking Restrictions which were highlighted in the Blog last week. Father Martin attended the meeting on Thursday armed with the many signatures we collected at our Winter Bazaar and at Mass last Sunday; also the Council had received objections via the on-line petition we organised on our Web Site.
The new proposals introduce Free Parking Bays on both sides of the road, near to the junction with Rush Green Road, giving a maximum stay of 3 hours stay, Monday to Saturday 8.00 a.m. – 6.30 p.m. (with no return within 2 hours) There will be no restrictions on a Sunday. This will mean people attending Sunday and/or weekday Masses, Nursery School, Beavers, Rainbows, Cubs and Brownies or folk attending a funeral or wedding or the Saturday Shop will be able to park.
Please agree to these revised proposals which meet all our requirements by contacting Streetcare, at Havering Town Hall by email to firstname.lastname@example.org : stating you are in favour of the proposals and if you wish to add further comment please restrict this to no more than 100 words
