Congratulations to David and Hitomi on the birth of their little boy Matthew last Friday (22 Dec). David is a regular to both the 9:00 and 10:45 services. Congratulations to Danielle daughter of Claire for the safe arrival of her baby boy Callum born on the 1st November 2017 at 12.14 pm weighing 7lb 10 oz. Claire, Danielle and brother Dean were regulars to the Church before they all moved to Northumberland. To those who remember them they hope to come back for a visit in the new year Congratulations to Lydia daughter of Liz for the safe arrival of her baby Evie-Rose. Liz is a regular at the 10:45 service and has been very supportive of her daughter. Lydia still lives with Liz so the new arrival will be joining her. We are short on details but hope mother and daughter are doing well. Congratulations also to Paul who won a Best in Show prize at the Butterfly Conservation photographic competition. We’re all used to seeing Paul’s excellent photographs on our Christmas Cards, so it’s good to know others appreciate his work as well.
