Vacancy for J&P Commission Administrator. After passing a significant age milestone I have asked for retirement from my post as Administrator after several years.

Monday 27th February to Sunday 12th March: Fairtrade Fortnight. Now is the time to promote Fairtrade. Three-quarters of the Parishes in our Diocese are NOT Fairtrade Parishes! If your Parish is one of these, is this the time to become a Fairtrade Parish? Please be aware that the Commission sent letters to all these Parishes to encourage them to participate. Do take the initiative in your Parish to make this happen; don’t wait for someone else to do it. There is more information and links on our website at www.birminghamjandp.org.uk
