Community Care celebrates Twenty one Years

The garden at ‘Stavely’ in Slades Lane, home of Douglas and Gretna Godwin, was the setting for a Garden Party at the end of July. Galleywood Community Care has been providing its services in the village for twentyone years and marked the occasion by inviting around eighty guests to enjoy this beautiful setting. Early threatening skies gave way eventually to warm sunshine for the cake cutting ceremony. Chairman, The Rev. Stephen Bailey, vicar of St. Michael’s, welcomed the Mayor and Mayoress and expressed his pleasure that the former chairman, Canon Allan Willett had made a return visit to Galleywood. The valuable work done by his successors, Charles Comport and Bill Freeman was also acknowledged, along with the many helpers who contribute to the work of the Association. The vicar concluded: ‘…As a Christian, I thank God for all those who have been inspired to help this Association in the past and pray that He will raise up similar people to carry on this work in the future.
