Please visit the church or contact us for an application form if you would like to have the name of a loved one added (who has died since October 2012).

Goodbye and hello!

Revd Mark Bailey wrote in the Annual Report of the PCC ‘and more than a big thank you to Mary Cleal, who steps down as Churchwarden at South Wonston. Happily, Mary will continue to keep an eye on the Rector in the PCC!’

I am sure everyone would like to join in echoing the Rector’s big thank you and wish Mary all the best for the future.

We also welcome our new Church Warden Ian Soutar and Stuart Pugh who have volunteered their time and skills to serve on St Margaret’s PCC.

Building Fabric

Painting the Forth Road Bridge is continuing at St Margaret’s with general repairs and maintenance continuing unabated to the Church building. Thankfully the majority of the repairs are manageable but the condition of the pointing on the east side of the spine wall has given cause for concern. Following consultation with the architect quotes are being obtained for the necessary cleaning and remedial work.
