RIP Andrew Johnson

It was with great sadness that we learned of the sudden and unexpected death of Andrew Johnson. In February, many gathered together to mark the life of a wonderful man. His funeral drew together bishops and registrars from across the country, as well many singers to form an amazing choir for his funeral – the whole service was a great tribute to our much loved friend.

Salisbury Cathedral kindly lent us their vestments for the occasion:

Many sandwiches and cups of tea were prepared…


The hall offered a video link to the service in the church, so that all were able to be part of the service



This was probably the first time that we’ve had five bishops in St Mary’s, Fordingbridge

A great day was had by all with family skittles in the morning, and an evening skittles and delicious dinner. See if you can work out who won!
