A glorious afternoon spent at Hemyock Parish church for a service of thanksgiving when a new oak/glazed porch door,wooden churchyard seats and trumpet organ stop were dedicated by the Bishop of Crediton. Cream teas were served after the service. Many past church members and
church friends had travelled from as far afield as Exmouth, Berkshire, Dorset,Exeter, Plymouth, Warwickshire and Shropshire joining those from the more local area and parishioners as friendships were remembered and renewed.  Long standing residents may remember some folk who had ties with the church  a number of years ago these  included Margaret and David Llewellyn -Jones. Ron Cork, Ruth and Judith Hannaford, Ann and Sue Matthews, Ann Turner and John Northam  who had all travelled some distance to be at the service
