St John's Opens for Private Prayers

Minal-16

CHURCHES in Marlborough are now open for private prayer. 

They are St Mary’s, Marlborough, St George’s, Preshute and our own St John the Baptist, Minal.

Social distancing signs are up to guide people. More than 200 people have taken part in online services over 12 weeks.

The doors will be wedged open and people are encouraged to leave a marker where they have sat so that others can avoid those seats, which will be cleaned at the end of the day.

"The churches are some of the oldest buildings in Marlborough and for us reopening them is part of the whole town coming back to life," said Rev Chris Smith, rector of Marlborough.

Let's Go Back in Time

While we all get used to the extraordinary quiet of our village during these challenging times, it's nice to turn the clock back and view our community as it was through these lovely old photogaphs that have been kindly passed on by Angela Fry, formerly Angela Bailey, who lived with her parents in Minal. 

It is thought that some of these belonged to the late Pat Courtman, who many of us older residents will remember well.  As Pat (or Miss Courtman to most of us!) was for many years the formidable chair of our parish council.image6
