. THREE DAYS TO REMEMBER .
A snapshot of a busy weekend at St Faith's
On Friday, July 28th, five years since he left St Faith's for a new posting to the parish of Bushey,
Fr Neil Kelley, our vicar from 1999-2012, returned to present an evening concert of popular classics,
with a little help from some friends. By way of an appetiser, a lavish buffet was laid on in the church hall,
giving those present a chance to meet and greet Fr Neil on his welcome return.
The event raised the best part of £1000 for the back of Church Development scheme,
which aims to upgrade the facilities in that area by providing kitchen and toilet facilities.
On Saturday, July 29th, a different musical event took place at noon in church.
As part of the Summer Saturday Recitals - which have been running for 19 years, Ranee Seneviratne
paraded the Cantilena singers: a selection of her (mostly) young and talented music students.
Then on Sunday morning, July 30th, after the 11.00 a.m. Sung Eucharist,
it was time for a different celebration. Our good friend Margaret Davies (whom God preserve)
had turned 90 a few days earlier, and is seen cutting a splendid cake to mark the event.
