Parish Ride on Lawn Mowers now requiring insurance:

Ride on Lawn mowers have in recent times avoided a need for motor insurance if they were operated solely in private places, such as school grounds or parish/church grounds only. These places, school grounds, parish or church grounds are no longer considered private places. Thus as they are now a public place, there is a requirement for motor insurance.

Going home, going home,                              Mother’s there expecting me.                

I’m going home.                                          Father’s waiting too.  

Quiet-like, some still day,                                                    Lots of folk gathered there.

I’m just going home.                                               All the friends I knew.  

It’s not far just close by                                All the friends I knew.                                     

through an open door.

 Work all done, care laid by, 

 going to fear no more.

In Bread we bring you, Lord.

In bread we bring you Lord, our bodies labour.

In wine, we offer you our spirits grief. We do

not ask you, Lord who is my neighbour? But stand

united now, in one belief. Oh we have gladly heard

your word, your holy word, and now in answer Lord

our gifts we bring. Our selfish hearts make true,

our failing faith renew, our lives belong to you, our Lord and King.

There is a Place.

There's a time for remembering, a time to recall.

The trials and the triumphs, the fears and the falls.

There's a time to be grateful for moments so blest,

The jewels of our memory where love is our guest.
