Many thanks to Francine Rough and Matt Towill for decorating the arch for Harvest and to Peter Jones for his display of squash and pumpkins in the porch. Even though we are not using the church as much as usual it is great to be able to show that life is continuing.
It was with great sadness that we heard on 17th April that Celia Gilbert had died after a long period of very debilitating dementia.
Celia had been associated with St Peter’s church in many ways for more than 30 years. Her children, Katherine and Anthony, attended Sunday School here in the 1980s & 90s, she taught music and singing to many children in Pimperne and the Blandford area, played organ and keyboard for church events, and was a regular member of our congregation, even during very severe phases of her illness.
Our prayers are with Celia’s husband, Mike, and with her children and grandchildren. You can read a lovely tribute from Katherine at http://www.psdbenefice.org.uk/tribute, and if you go to the ‘bellringing’ section of our website (http://www.psdbenefice.org.uk/bell-ringing) you can hear Celia describing the restoration of our bells in 2004/5.
