After morning service on 12 September 2010 the church family gathered together to celebrate Bernard Potter’s retirement from the office of Church Secretary after 28 years of dedicated service. The Minister paid tribute to Bernard’s commitment, loyalty, attention to detail, and his pastoral care for the whole church family throughout those years. He presented Bernard with a gift and a card signed by the church family, and Mavis received a large bouquet of flowers. In reply, Bernard thanked people for their generosity and said that he could not have fulfilled his role without Mavis’s loving and loyal support, not to mention her practical help.
A special celebration cake was provided by Maureen Coney, and this was enjoyed by everyone with their coffee.
