What exactly do the Finance Committee do?

Sometimes people ask me what exactly the various committees in our parish 'do'. It is not always easy to describe the many ways in which all these groups of volunteers help me in the day to day running of our parish.

Take today, for an example; some members of our Finance Committee turned up early in the morning to tackle the problem of cleaning all those 'hard to reach' areas in our parish hall. Very commendable, I'm sure you'll agree. What you may not realise is quite what is involved.

Before any cleaning can take place, the scaffolding tower needs to be assembled. Any of you who have ever had any experience with Airfix Kits or assembling flat-pack furniture will know that it is not always that straightforward to work out which piece fits together with which other piece, especially when there are no instructions or even a diagram to help!

Always equal to a challenge, Ron and John manfully settled down to the task in hand. As you can see from the picture, in next to no time they had the tower fully assembled and were ready to wage war on the assembled cobwebs.

Well done. Thank you for all that you do for our parish, both in the committee room and outside it.

Thank goodness for the explanation. At first glance I thought the 'Spanish Inquisition' were back!
