If you have visited the church recently you will have noticed the smart curtains on the vestry door to keep out the draught. Many thanks to Mary Hyslop-Winn, Topsy Easteal and Ann Kemp for making such a good job of them, and thank you to Tony Easteal for fixing the rod.

Church Lunch

After our January Communion service 20+ of us adjourned to The Pembroke in Tenbury Wells for an excellent parish lunch. We all left feeling most replete. The pub did us proud and thank you to Andrew and his team for looking after us so well.
