One thought on “PHOTO GALLERY UP TO AUGUST 2017

  1. Beautiful – I used to sing in the choir (sometimes just me!) as a child. My god mother Aunty Ray Taylor brought us every Sunday, my brother Patrick and I. My wonderful grand parents, Louis Walter Maitland and Deborah nee Jones are buried here, used to have a memorial bench by the porch. I was recalling our favoured communion hymn, “And now, oh Father, mindful of the love” and praying, and then I wanted to show my husband where Challoch is. Lovely website. Many thanks, Penny McPherson, nee Penelope Maitland-Cullen.
