A new bench, purchased jointly by the Parish of Our Lady of Walsingham and St Francis of Assisi, Rochester, Kent and Mrs Valerie Capper, has been donated to the Fort Pitt Military cemetery in memory of the late Barry Capper, one of the stalwarts of the parish and chief server for many years. At a short ceremony after Mass on Sunday 5 June 2011, during which we reflected on Barry’s life and contribution to the parish and two of his favourite hymns were sung, the seat was blessed and dedicated by The Very Revd Raymond Thompson, Parish Priest.
