An intrepid twelve hikers braved the weather this year. Our leader Keith Woodward steered the group on a road only route as the walk started just as the rain did and seemed to stop soon after their return. Our minister for the evening, Rev. Neil Johnson did the walk as well as leading us all through the well attended evening service, after the walkers and more than a few others from around the circuit, were fortified by the now traditional beefburgers and sausages. Many thanks to all our helpers today, from washers-up to trail leader.
We celebrated after church today that Mary has reached her 90th birthday. It was pointed out that the secret in Whitacre to reaching the higher numbers seems to be to remain on the church cleaning and tea rotas. We all sang a rousing "happy Birthday" and then enjoyed her cake to help her with her celebrations.
