Parishioners gave a total of £516.11 for a present for Deacon Paul Boshell as a thank you for his 23 years of service to the Parish.

On Friday 13 August, Rachel and Martin presented him with £500 in cash in a purse hand-made by Rachel, while the remaining sum went towards a bottle of his favourite Italian wine.

Julie and Martin made a card for him using photographs from his Ordination Day.

Thank you to all who contributed.
