 We would be grateful if the A4 poster below could be displayed on Church notice boards. We need to publicise it as widely as we can, and word of mouth will also be very important.

The second document is for information, so people can see what ‘Places of Welcome' is about. It's a growing national network that began in the West Midlands and then has been promoted through the Lichfield diocesan ‘Transforming Communities' initiative. We will be the first to join the Place of Welcome network in Shropshire!

If anyone would like to know more about the St Oswald's drop-in they can contact me on 01691 778024 or by email at leek1@btinternet.com.
