Help sought for Syrian Family

Jacky Mattam is seeking help for a Syrian Family in Grove.

I have a friend who is exploring what is available locally to help Ayman (the father of the Syrian family who moved to Grove last September) to get involved in the community.

In Syria he was a painter and decorator and also did some wood carving and worked as a taxi driver.

Anything that gives him the chance to get experience and practice his English would be great (he's learning from scratch so that's a work in progress!)

He would love to be able to work but even just a few hours a week volunteering would be great.

Anything you can offer or think of please let me know as soon as you can.

If you can help in any way, please contact Jacky jackymattam@btinternet.com

From The Manse.....As we move into October having enjoyed some glorious weather through September, our thoughts as usual turn towards harvest.Like so much of this year, we will not be able to celebrate or to do what we have customarily done in the past.Smaller numbers in church, (where open) donations for food-banks to be isolated for 72 hours and those great harvest hymns internally hummed...
