Many in the parish will have recently received the winter edition of Outlook - we are very lucky to have a dedicated editor and delivery team and we all owe a big thank you to Yvonne Newbegin for all her efforts to organise the delivery team in the past.

There are currently 2 rounds where the deliverers have not been found - we would be very grateful if someone local to the areas given would volunteer to deliver in the future. It is just 3 times a year, the copies are delivered to your home.

Round 3 - Delivery includes Woodlands Drive and mid 100's on Woodlands Road 29 magazines
