GOODBYE TO NEIL AND GILL - A get-together was held at the church hall, Knighton to wish Neil and Gill Warrington all the best in their new home and to say thank you for all they have done for St Edward’s Church.
Over the past nine years Neil and Gill have made a huge contribution with their time, expertise, energy and forward planning, to the life of the church and hall. When they became members of the church it was at a stage where the pressure on finances was starting to hurt. There was much work that needed to be done. Jean Price, people’s warden said, “Despite much discussion and prayer we were still looking for that special person with vision and skill to motivate people into positive thinking and make things happen. Our prayers were answered. Along came Neil, and with the help of the Revd Chris Buckley, the plans to upgrade the church hall were soon in place.” Jean continued, “For much of this we have to thank Neil and Gill. I would like to thank them for their generosity, home made jams, marmalade, delicious cakes, draw and tombola prizes and many plants to sell at our fund raising events. We shall miss them both”.
