HEALTH AND SAFETY NOTICE FROM THE PROPERTY COMMITTEE The two main sets of doors to the front entrance to our church are currently fitted with auxiliary handrails/grab rails. We will shortly be removing the handrails from the doors nearest to Sandon Road. (On the right as you leave through the church foyer. The reason for this is to make a wider door opening. Handrails will remain on the other set of doors. It is also important that because both sets of doors act as Fire Exits they must be kept unlocked at all times when the church is in use. Geoff France, Property chairman
