I hope that you have had a good summer and enjoyed the wonderful weather that we have had. My garden was showing signs of drying up and becoming parched but recent rain has led to almost a full recovering of its greenness. One of the spin offs of the dry summer was that I didn't need to cut the grass so often.

I am very grateful to all who took part in the 'Cherish you Church Yard week' in June. Our Church and churchyard were open to visitors 11th-16th June and many came.

What a wonderful wedding it was for Prince Harry and Meghan Merkel, now Duke and Duchess of Sussex. We had a great day watching our TV screens and seeing the magnificent pageantry, which the British do so well, mixed with a very positive contribution from so many people from the ethnic community. The Head of the Episcopal Church of America (Anglican) Bishop Michael gave a dynamic sermon and the Dean of Windsor overseen by the Archbishop of Canterbury, conducted the service magnificently. Maybe more people wishing to marry might now choose a church wedding. Bells were rung at St Mary's on the Sunday afternoon which many have appreciated. The first full peal for about fifty years.
