Beth Shalom News - 10.08.2017





  1. During the refurbishment there will only be one toilet available which is upstairs in the Hebrew School area. For those who find stairs a challenge this is a reminder. 

  2. The construction area has a “No Go” warning for the entire period of the refurbishment. It is a building site now and Beth Shalom is responsible under the new Health & Safety rules so please keep away from the zone. 

  3. The refurbishment project is being funded exclusively by your donations and pledges a third of which you will get back in your tax! Please contact the office for bank details and other ways of donating.

  4. During the renovation period, the office may only be open intermittently but please leave phone messages and email as usual. Congregants should please not bring any Judaica or books to donate to the shul during this time as there is just no room to accommodate donations of this type.
