Two new Churchwardens at Milton Abbas

 Paula and Jennifer are the new Churchwardens at Milton Abbas as from yesterday evening, when they were commissioned at St George's Church, Oakdale, Poole. They take over the reins from Su and Murray who have served superbly as Churchwardens at St James Church, Milton Abbas.

Paula and Jennifer (along with a good number from other churches) made their declaration before the Registrar. The Archdeacon talked of the need to serve with joy and I am sure that these two will do this.

The service was followed by refreshments and our two new churchwardens were happy to test the church wines!
