Broken Church Sign Christmas 2013

An unexpected casualty of the dreadful weather over Christmas 2013 at Church appeared to be our hanging sign ... Although to be honest we have a feeling that it was helped by human hands. The bolts holding the frame to the wall had been wrenched out - The Bishop said he thinks someone may have been doing a drunken Tarzan impression. We had to take it down so, uniquely the preparation for the First Mass of Christmas involved Server, Roy Hipkiss, doing a gymnastic display atop a ladder!
