Thank you to our Property Bookings Officer
Church Council extends our appreciation and thanks to Julie McKinnon for her amazing behind-the-scenes contribution in managing bookings for all of our buildings and rooms.  Emerging from COVID lockdowns the BUC site is once again alive with activity including a wide range of BUC and other community and creative groups.  Thank you Julie!
Remember that if you are wishing to use a room, even for an informal meeting, its best to check with Julie to ensure the room is not otherwise booked.
