  1. nullA little Piece of History You will notice that the brass Cross that is currently on the Altar in the little chapel is 100 years old this Easter. It is engraved
    To the Glory of God
    St Johns Alexandra
    Easter 1916
    Helen noticed this but also says she knows nothing of the occasion for this gift. The donor of course could still be held in living memory among us. Any more in-formation?

  2. Do you remember this person?

    This photograph is kept in the sanctuary next to the aumbry – why? When I asked I was told ‘Oh that is Miss Maddocks, she used to be a Sunday school teacher and would walk across the paddocks carrying her lamp’. Well I wonder if there is anyone out there who was taught by her. If you were I am sure you would not have forgotten. Please write in and tell us something more. For someone like me, who never knew her, she looks terrifying.
    Whatever her story, she undoubtedly has made an impression and ended up in the sanctuary. Wow!
