Sisters of the Church

It was planned to make a delivery in late July prior the Sisters' August break and at the same time introduce James Symons to them. 

However we have now learned that they will be closing their operation in St Pauls from 11 July till 10 September to enable them to attend conferences prior the the break.

As there is now insufficient time to collect enough items to warrant a delivery before 11th July it is now intended to make one on 10th

September.

 We will do our best to remind you!
