Farewell to the Harveys, and Strawberry Tea

At our Patronal Festival yesterday we said thank you and farewell to the Harvey family. Nicky, Mike, David, Alice and Lucy have been part of Seal Church for many decades, but left us yesterday to move to Hadlow, where Nicky will be curate when she is ordained in September. Here are some pictures of their farewell, and the lovely cake decorated with edible photos. The afternoon saw our annual Strawberry Tea in the vicarage garden. The rain held off and a good time was had by all. Many thanks to all the events team who organised this.

An amazing photographic cake - the bottom third is a reproduction of our green altar frontal, with its lovely picture of the path leading away into the distance. 

As well as a gift of money, we gave the Harveys a picture by Pat Savage, an artist who is a member of our congregation

Seal School's Headteacher gave Nicky a gift from the governors.

Nicky, Mike, David, Alice and Lucy have all be longstanding members of the choir. 

Mike has normally been the crucifer, negotiating hazards like the chandelier with aplomb.

Cutting the cake.

Many thanks to Rosemary for organising the gift stall at the Strawberry Tea...
And to those who made and served sandwiches, cakes, strawberries and tea.
