For your attention and action where appropriate: (this information can also be found on our website http://bit.ly/2udGQts )
You are invited to join us at our next Justice and Peace Commission meeting to be held at St. Osburg’s RC Church Upper Hill Street Coventry CV1 4AQ on Saturday 14th April 9:30 for a 10am start. We are holding the meeting on a Saturday to give people who may be interested in joining the Commission but cannot attend on a Monday a chance to meet with us. After our meeting we normally take time to socialise over a light lunch. As part of their fundraising each Saturday St. Osburg’s provide lunches at a reasonable charge. It would be nice if you plan to attend the meeting to allow time to join with us for lunch. To help with the refreshments etc please can you email me if you plan to attend, I will then email you the agenda.
