Our Church Roof - Work Safety, Update
The roof repairs are now complete. However the work to repair the damaged stonework will take longer to complete. Please be aware that the area at the back of the church remains restricted for Health and Safety reasons, and the whole area is to be avoided due to the possibility of falling masonry. Restriction Notices have been placed accordingly.
Lou will be giving a concert of her style of Christian music in St Mary’s Church on November 18. Tickets will be £9 and the evening promises to be very entertaining. Here is a link to hear some of her work, to give a flavour of the concert:

Parish Magazine Editor
Next year, our Parish Magazine Editor, Sally, will be retiring from the post so a new editor is urgently needed. If you are a member of St Mary’s and are looking for a challenge, could this be the job for you? Full training will be given. If you are interested, please contact the Rector.
Our Final Tribute
On Monday afternoon, members of St Mary’s Church and Choir, paid their last respects to David Barker, our Choirmaster. The church was packed to capacity for this service with many friends from far and wide also attending. David had been in the RAF as a Bandsman for much of his life and was a musician in everything he did whether it was teaching others, conducting choirs and bands, writing music, anything really to do with music. We also found out that he was an expert on the railway system in this country, something that had become a hobby, something that was very different to his music!
An RAF Bandsman played the Last Post as David left the Church, a fitting tribute from his former colleagues.
David sadly died two weeks ago with his family around him at the age of 80, after a long illness. He is now resting peacefully and we remember him in our prayers.
