Fred Bear was delighted to attend the monthly Family Service at St Mary's Church with his friend Rev John Stone.

Fred took great delight in meeting his many relatives and other cuddly friends who had brought along their humans to enjoy the day. One of Fred's oldest and smallest relatives had journeyed from Australia in 1943 and this was the first time they had met so they had a lot to growl about.

 The Churchwardens, David Bawler and Jenny Doble, presented the recently refurbished Wardens staves for blessing at the start of the service.

Some people may wonder why the Church of England takes longer to put things into action than our non Conformist friends and there may well be folk who were wondering when the  handrail at St Marys would be added to the pulpit. Well, good news, after a 4 year wait it is now in place!
