Some stories just don’t seem to die.
It was Christmas morning in Chilton Polden. I’d just ended the service when Chris Lush came up to the front, armed with a package – and, explaining it to the congregation, presented it to me… It was the end of the bell-rope that I’d pulled off during the installation back in May – and now suitably mounted, framed and captioned!
In the meantime, one of our friends from Worcestershire (Jack Bevins) had given some creative thought to the same event…
For some reason, I think I may not have heard the last of that incident!
