The Car Park barrier has now been in use for two years, and for those parishioners who applied to have access to the car park outwith times of services we hope you have found it useful, and have not experienced too many problems in making use of the car park.

It is now time though to renew your "outside Mass times" access for a further year and donations to cover outlays are now being accepted. The current donation of £50 will remain the same as last year. The period covered will commence on 1st February 2019 and cease on 31st January 2020. Any donations handed in between now and the 31st January will allow access until 31st January 2020. If you have not updated your access donation by 31st January access to the car park will cease from 1st February.

Donations can be passed to either Fr Chris or to Mike Pendlowski. When handing over donation (if by cheque, please make payable to "St Margaret's RC Church"), please put it in an envelope with your name on the front, and the mobile phone number which will be used to operate the barrier.

IMPORTANT: There has been a case in the past of a driver abandoning a car within the yellow hatched lines on the road side of the barrier, blocking the safety beams. This inconsiderate action effectively precluded opening of the barrier for ANYONE entering or exiting the car park. PLEASE STAY CLEAR OF THE HATCHED AREAS when attempting to open the barrier with your mobile phone.
