Transport  As we update many of our policies to be in line with Church of England guidance, we now need to compile a list of people who offer vehicle lifts on behalf of the church. This is not the same as offering lifts to friends to a church group, but if you have, or would like to, give lifts on behalf of a church group to any attendees, please could you contact Rosalind Robinson who has kindly agreed to mange this list.
