Well, I survived Sunday morning at Valley. Not that the people there are anything other than lovely, but I succumbed to a reasonably nasty cold on Friday. Pretty much everybody else was on holiday other than Roger (who was taking the 10.30 at St. Nicholas), but in the event I did have some voice left on Sunday morning.
The next task (ha!) is analysis of our parish survey, “commissioned” by the PCC to seek parishioner’s views of how things are going and how they might need to change. As expected, the useful data is in the written-in comments rather than the tick-the-box questions. There is going to be quite a bit of work in figuring out how to present the comments in a useful and fair way.
