CANDLEMAS SUNDAY was a busy day in the life of the Parish Church with the 9.30am Holy Communion service led by Rev Richard Ward-Smith and with Luke Francis playing the organ. The lesson was read by John Cleave and Arthur Bryant took the collection. Arthur also assisted Rev Ward-Smith with the administration of the Holy Communion. At 12.30 the annual Roast Beef luncheon was served in the Community Hall. The meal was prepared and served by members and friends of the Church. Frank Whitehead and Arthur Wickett took money at the door and the prize raffle was overseen by Rev Ward-Smith and Bridget Inch. All proceeds were for Parish Church funds.
