Fire alarm practice
Two Sundays past the congregation at 11.30am met an unexpected conclusion to the mass. Invited to remain in their seats, all were given explicit instructions on how they should empty the church in case of an emergency. The alarm bells should have then sounded, but did not. Nonetheless, all obeyed the verbal order to depart in silence, rapidly without taking possessions especially cumbersome buggies. They acted splendidly, vacating the church and assembling at the appointed post within 90 seconds. Do notice please how well the Parish Council is looking after you. Immense work has been done, at some expense to ensure we are compliant with all health and safety regulations.
