Life begins at 80 Please wish a Happy Birthday to Olive who is 80 today Sunday! We don’t know what celebrations they have in mind but hope Olive & Douglas enjoy their day.
Music Festival – Rebecca, Dave and family have just enjoyed the “Big Church Day Out” in Cheshire last weekend. Rebecca says there were some amazing Christian artists, an incredible atmosphere with lots of different stages to choose from as well as so much more. We loved every minute of listening to God’s word through music.
Susan & Family are not in church today as she is returning to her home church of St Mark’s, Dukinfield, Cheshire, where she grew up. There is an unveiling of a plaque in memory of her father and will be alongside the screen in memory of her mother, this will be dedicated by the Right Reverend Libby Lane, Bishop of Stockport. (She was the first woman to be made a Bishop in the Church of England). We hope she has a great time renewing old friendships.
News from Sudbury Alan Potter with his brother enjoyed lunch with Andy & Jane this week, Andy just arriving from the reserve with soaking wet boots and socks (I’m told it’s a wetland area!!). Jane starts a job Monday as co-ordinator in the rehabilitation centre for 30 hours a week, run by the same organisation where Andy works part time. Ruth is going through the recruitment process for teacher training in Suffolk & Essex having found working as an assistant earlier in the year a revelation. Andy and Jane both looked very happy enjoying their new life and lovely house in Sudbury.
Congratulations to Beryl and Chris who were finally able to celebrate Christmas with all the family, after delays for snow and illness. We don’t know if there was turkey and Christmas crackers but they certainly had a great time.
