CLASSIC BIKE SHOW
The latest in this very successful series of annual meetings took place after Mass on Sunday June 9th. We had a splendid team of helpers who transported tables and chairs across the Parish and set up gazebos and cooking equipment and who then served refreshments to the visitors. The weather was very good indeed (despite the bad weather of the previous few days) and it only rained as we were packing up. As usual Fr Michael blessed the bikes and their riders during the afternoon; something which is always very much appreciated. There was an excellent atmosphere about the occasion and it was good to welcome friends both old and new to the event. Our grateful thanks to the London Borough of Hillingdon for allowing us to use the stable yard, and to Dave Goddard and his colleagues for their kindness and help in staging the event.
ADMISSION OF CHURCHWARDENS
On Sunday afternoon of June 16th Howard and Julie were admitted to the Office of Churchwarden by the Archdeacon of Middlesex at a service in St John the Baptist Isleworth. We wish them well as they begin their "official" term of office.
CONGRATULATIONS TO A WORLD RECORD HOLDER
One of the joys in having the Saturday practice sessions at St Dunstan's is to be able to welcome Dennis Brock, a ringer from St Mary's Sunbury. Last year he celebrated his 100th birthday and was featured on BBC London News. He is thought to be the world's oldest bellringer. He has just been awarded the BEM for which we offer him our heartiest congratulations.
