It was a great surprise to Joyce Halliday when she was awarded her 60 year long service certificate. Joyce thought that she was attending the monthly Communion service at the home where she is now a resident. There was certainly a look of surprise when her son wheeled her in and she saw that that there were members of her branch sitting there!
During the service Canon Lee Francis-Dehqani handed over to me and the presentation was made. Joyce is an inspiration to her branch.
Thank you Joyce for your commitment, something that has impressed me about so many of our senior members.
The pictures show Joyce with members of her branch, her son David and Rev. Lee.
