Harold studied the letter. “The council forwarded this to me,” he said. “A group of residents want to use St. Marples as an Ethnic Centre.”

“You already lease it to the market,” said Jasfoup. “Unless they just want to rent the second floor, in which case they can renovate it at their own expense.” He paused, frowning. “What sort of Ethnic centre?” he said. “What ethnicity?”

“It doesn’t say,” said Harold. “I could make a stipulation, if you like.”

Jasfoup nodded, a smile like the Mona Lisa’s chasing away the frown. “Make them be open to all non-Christians,” he said. “That’s about right for an unconsecrated church.”
