Anne's final letter from the Vicarage

Anne's final letter from the Vicarage

God = love= Community, and if we hang onto that thought, all will be well. Firstly I am sorry that due to ill health, I have had to leave you so soon, and secondly I just want to thank all those in the church and in the community who have made me welcome since I arrived last October.

I see the work of God all over Gorran, the Monday morning coffee group, the Wednesday craft club, Mel’s choir, Mel you are an inspirational teacher! The gig rowing, Friday nights at the cricket club, the fortnightly lunches at the memorial hall, the community café, the Gorran Bus, and the way so many look out for their neighbours and wrap them round with love. Also our village shops who always greet us with a smile, even though they know that many have just submitted their online order to a supermarket, the friendliness of our local pub. (and with all 3 use it or lose it)!These are only a few of the situations I have come across here in Gorran, and I am sure there are many more.

So thank you one and all, and if you are ever in the Sidmouth area, please do drop by. My email will remain the same for now.

God = love = community

With every blessing to one and all
