The SVP for arranged a Summer Tea Party which was held on Thursday afternoon. The school choir also came to sing various songs to the parishioners!
There was sandwiches and various cakes on offer too. Another parishioner very kindly provided some entertainment before the school choir arrived.
Thank to the SVP (Saint Vincent de Paul Society) and school children for making this event a joyful celebration!
From the newsletter:
Good wishes to our school leavers. Mass was celebrated for them at St Patrick’s on Friday and Mass was celebrated at St Mary’s on Monday.
Very special good wishes to our Senior Leaver – Mr Michael Manton – who is retiring as headteacher at St Mary’s, having served the school so very well.
There was a small party in St Mary’s School last week for the staff and children… the Parish Priest and Parish MC sneaked in for an ice-cream but were caught red handed!
Canon Cooper joined Mr Manton and some other members of staff for a photo.
