UPDATE “THANK GODIT’S CHRISTMAS”
A big thank youto all those who have volunteered to help!
This Saturday’sevent promises to be a really interesting affair – and all free to boot! Unlike the St Nicholas Fayre which wasdirected toward the visitors coming to shop in York, “Thank God …” is directedto the York community itself – a far more laid back affair, and yet in it’s ownway, quite a witness to the people of this city whom we serve.
