Offensive material

Please do not post offensive material or links to offensive material.   If you are in any doubt about the suitability, please contact the Parish Office first.

Capital Letters

Please do not write your content in capital letters. For example,  THIS IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE EQUIVALENT OF SHOUTING AT SOMEONE and not good ‘netiquette’ (etiquette on the internet  and/or email). Emboldening the type as well only compounds the issue.

We expect ALL our members to remember other peoples opinions and points of view should be respected. The fact that someone does not agree with a specific opinion, does not mean that it is wrong.
