Here are pictures from the service held on 29th January attended by 280 people approx with music provided by the St John’s Church Choir and Band and members of the choir from nearby Hindon and Chilmark parishes.

More pictures from the farewell presentation and party in a packed Hinton Hall.  Farewell gifts included the original demonstation glass engraving of the Lamb & Flag now permanently etched into the new glass doors in the north porch, a painting of St John’s and…flowers!

Andrew and Donelle have retired to France; we wish them well!
