TOMORROW St Mark’s is hosting a tour group of about 40 people on Monday 25th June at 2:40 pm (approximately). With this number expected we will need 4 or 5 people to help guide visitors to the washrooms, help those with moderate mobility issues and just be welcoming. The tour will start with a short visit to the church and then will go out to see the south garden and cemetery. They will be here for only 30 minutes and are then going across the street to visit another garden. Contact Doug Armstrong at dougarmstrong8@gmail com, or speak to Les or Marion on Sunday
