On Saturday night over 60 people of all ages came to the New hall to say farewell to Marjorie, who will be moving to Suffolk shortly to be nearer to her sister Dorothy, and the rest of her family. She was given a silver tray, some bubbly and a cheque in gratitude for all that she has contributed to the life of the parish over the last 40 years. Kindness, good humour and a deep faith have sustained her as she has taken on almost every role necessary to run a church like St Barnabas, including church-warden, sunday school teacher and sacristan. Generosity and wise counsel have been among her specialities.
God’s speed Marjorie! At least we all know you will be visiting as regularly as you can manage!
