Church Hospitality at its best

Was to be found from the wonderful people of St Vincent's Church, Caythorpe.

As members of a Royal Signals regiment came to celebrate Advent in the same building that members of the Airborne Signals prayed in before they left to drop into Arnhem. It was for us a full circle moment as earlier this year we found ourselves in Arnhem for the 69th anniversary of Operation Market Garden.

A big 'Thank You' to Alison Healy for allowing us use of the building, to Jo (one of the Wardens) and those who came and gave us tea, coffee, mince pies and an extremely warm welcome on a reasonably chilly morning.

And most importantly - to those members of the church who came and took part in the mornings' proceedings (and stayed on to talk and engage so wonderfully with us.

Thank you from all of us and we wish you a blesséd and joyous Adventide and Christmas.
