Grateful Thanks

Church The Villager

Thank you to all those who held the fort during the interregnum. Since Ben Flenley’s departure a small band of people have valiantly maintained all the facilities of our village church in a most commendable fashion. At the beginning none of them knew how long it would be before the announcement of our new Priest in Charge, but this did not deter them from carrying on. Among those involved were Mr Dunwoody, and other members of the parochial church council; Stella Burnett, and the other ladies of the Guild of St Martha; and most importantly, in regard to the care of all the outside areas and grounds, Charlie Phillips and those valiant members of his labouring force. Also, mention of Sue Phillips and other ladies who have continued to produce lovely floral decorations in the church and not least to Chris Hurley and his team of skilled Campanologists. ...
