What a week it has been. The extreme weather conditions have really caused mayhem throughout the country this week. Many poor people stuck on motorways and trains for hours on end. Kind, thoughtful members of the public, supplying stranded people with hot beverages and food. It has been touching to hear the stories on the news, on how kind our nation still can be.
Here in Aldeburgh the theme has pretty much continued. Our wonderful team here, led by our Rector, Revd Mark Lowther have carried on, serving our community as usual. No “I can’t get in due to the weather”, for them. A huge thank you to all of our clergy, our church wardens, parish clerk, and our lay elders, for keeping the services flowing. Your efforts are much appreciated.
Ken Smith, and Derek Cook (our deputy church wardens) spent hours clearing the car park of snow, ready for the attendees of a funeral held at Aldeburgh Parish Church. Jane, our organist, has been digging her way out of her Road, and moving her car a bit closer day by day, since Thursday so she can get to us for our 10.30am service this week. Our Revd Nichola Winter (who was snowed in) made part the way, on foot to take a funeral service. See photo.
THANK YOU ALL
