Dedication of Model Railway

On 7 April 2013, the Church was pleased to welcome June's family to “The Big Shed” to support her as she unveiled a plaque on the model railway, gifted to the Church after the passing of June's husband Don.

Creative skills continue to be employed as work on the model railway progresses.
