A time of appreciating all who contribute to the life of Old Town was held at St Elisabeth’s Church recently. Jill Preece offered prayers of thanksgiving and blessing for every aspect of the life in Old Town, education, healthcare, commerce, third sector and politics.

Organiser Erik Cornelisse said, “We really love this community. It was a time of songs from the Monkees, a Carol King classic You Have a Friend as well as an Amazing Grace rendition set to the tune of House of the Rising Sun.

“We planned to sing songs people, who do not attend church, can still sing along to – and they did. All who attended left with a bookmark and Martyn Relf referred to the church as being the beating heart of Old Town.”
