Happy Easter?

According to the Church of England 30 churches are closed every year. I couldn't find the figure for the Catholic church but the number must be close to the number of pubs closing.

Maybe there is a correlation, perhaps Tesco is expanding their Faith range alongside the cheap booze?

Most likely the drop in church numbers is due to the return home of the Polish immigrant population and the horrific child sex abuse scandals that have hit the headlines this Easter.
