Our cleaning team at Oakham are complete heroes – a small band, they keep the main part of the church sparkling right through the year, but if you look up at the roof you’ll see the spiders have been busy and the muck is building up again. It’s time for the Church Big Clean again! This year it’s happening on Saturdays 9 and 16 June 9:30am-12:00pm, and we’ll be cleaning the high parts, then (when all the dust etc has come down to ground level) cleaning the furniture, windowsills and all the reachable areas. We need (a) as many people as possible to help and (b) some ways of shifting dust from the capitals and arches without us leaving the ground. Some of you may remember Owen’s 20-foot long feather duster! Ideas to Ann Blackett, and please sign up on the notice by the South door. Thank you very much!
