Archant

As part of the centenary celebrations at Holy Ghost Church, 100 pensioners from across the town were invited for a ‘cen-tea-nary’ cream tea.

A delightful afternoon was enjoyed by all in the church, gardens and parish hall and the visitors were welcomed by a host of parishioners who gave tours, waited on tables and explained the history of the church.

A wonderful organ recital by Michael Farley gave everyone the opportunity to listen to the recently refurbished church organ and a quiz on the Royal Family certainly brought out the competitive spirit of the visitors.

The whole place was awash with thousands of sweet peas which have been grown this year by parishioners, young and old, especially for the centenary events. Despite dubious weather forecasts, the afternoon was warm and sunny and the pensioners were joined by the Mayor of Exmouth, Bill Nash, and the Mayor of Budleigh Salterton, Caz Sismore Hunt.
