Thank you all for making 70 years of age more palatable. I was delighted that so many of you could join me as I passed through the gates of this Biblical number. The cards, the texts, and the gifts (even though the law of the land strictly prohibited it). Thank you to the hard working team who organised the lovely evening. Whilst it was a birthday celebration, it was more; it was a parish coming together. Perhaps something we need to do more often?
