The Big Green Day was a wonderful, huge success!
So many people did so much to make it so – so thank you to everyone who was a part of it. Special thanks to Di Morgan, Bob and Christian for the energy and momentum of their enthusiasm. And thanks to those who were able to come and support this community celebration.
This Sunday, 19th May, the Archdeacon of Bath, Venerable Adrian Youings, was at both churches to relicense Debbie as Associate Priest. Prosecco and cake were enjoyed at St Stephen's after the service.
