Goodbye and God be with you

Sometimes we have to say goodbye to people who have been with us for a long time; sometimes a very long time.  In this case we were saying goodbye to Nessie and Roger, who have been coming to St Benedict's for almost as long as the church has been here.  They have known and worshipped with every vicar and curate who has ever been at St Benedicts.  They have woven their lives into our church, with roles on the PCC, and co-ordinating various tasks; Nessie in particular has been responsible for church flowers for almost as long as anyone can remember (and done some wonderful things - see here) and also for Mothers' Union (again, see here). 








They are moving to be with family in Scotland and we wish them all the best and pray for them as they begin this new stage of their lives.
