It’s not just about a faster internet experience or doing one thing quicker, it’s about everyone being able to do their own thing online, all at the same time. You can work or play - smarter, faster, better – whether from your smartphone, tablet or computer. Check the Connecting Cheshire website to see if your home or business can be upgraded and then contact your Internet Service Provider or shop around for the best deal and order a fibre broadband service - it doesn’t happen automatically! www.connectingcheshire.org.uk There is also a video available that explains the upgrading process.
There is a realistic possibility of building a NEW church hall in the next 12 months. The church urgently needs to clarify their requirements and wishes to liaise with the congregation, hall users and the wider village community to do this.
St John's is consulting as widely as possible on what may be required. The consultation document with some background information may be downloaded here.

Ebola in W Africa
The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the deadliest ever, killing more than 5,000 people and infecting a further 8,000. Thousands of vulnerable children have been left orphaned, with many more at risk from the disease.
UNICEF is on the ground providing families with household protection kits containing gloves, masks, soap and chlorine. They are also helping to provide tents for temporary health centres, as well as medical supplies for hospitals and health workers.
We are in a race against time to contain the outbreak. Children are in immediate danger and without emergency support, thousands more lives could be lost.
Please donate today so we can help vulnerable children affected by the Ebola virus.
