In Memory of Mary Medhurst (1935-2015)
Mary passed away at St Barnabas Hospice on Thursday 2 July. The celebration and thanksgiving for the life of Mary took place today, 9 July, at St Mary the Virgin Church in East Preston.

Hazel Tester is doing a Tandem SkyDive for charity
Hazel is an East Preston Parish councillor. She is doing a Tandem Skydive for St Barnabas House around the end of May, because she wants to raise money for St Barnabas.
