Ruth Blandford is the last of our original 'Lay Pastors' set up 34 years ago to assist the vicar in the running of the parish. On Saturday 1st July she was our latest
'Castaway' to share her 'Dymock Island Discs' at our annual 'Vintage Tea Party' held, as in the recent past, in Dymock Church.
Clearly she was cast away on a tropical desert
island because the weather was unusually hot.
However, the temperature in the church was pleasantly cool as we shared in a vintage style afternoon tea of sandwiches and cake whilst listening to her recollections of a long-running association with our local community, interspersed with her choice of 8 records. (Return to top)
