All change at Quiet Waters Christian retreat house

It is all change for the staff team at Quiet Waters Christian retreat house in Bungay with an appeal for volunteer help also issued.

Andrew and Ruth and Derek and Paula have now left the team and Mike and Liz are holding the fort while the search continues for a new warden and team members. More voluntary help is also needed.

Liz said: “We are always looking for voluntary help. If you feel able to offer some time to Quiet Waters that would be great. You will appreciate that the garden is going crazy at the moment. Also, if you fancy doing some painting, the outside of our windows and doors could do with some TLC. Let us know if you would like to get involved in any way.”
The team is also looking to buy a second-hand car that would be available for Quiet Waters business. “We're thinking of a petrol, five door hatchback, 10 - 12 years old costing in the region of £3000 - £4000,” said Liz. “If you would like to contribute towards this we would be grateful. It may be that you're about to change your car and your old one would suit us - please let us know.”
Geoff Sanders, the previous chair of trustees, has died following a short illness and current chair, Phil Perry, said: “Geoff is now with the Lord but please pray for his wife Carol, and their family. Geoff served as chairman for 12 years and is greatly missed.

“Jackie Hughes has recently stepped down as a trustee and is moving out of the area. Jackie has contributed much to the life of Quiet Waters over many years, both as a trustee and a volunteer.”
