Raymond’s frequently repeated claim never to have had a child cry during a baptism service has been challenged! At the recent picnic in Lydiard Park, one child proudly announced that she did actually cry during her baptism several years ago. Loudly!

The offender was none other than Megan.

PCC members have asked if we can discuss this news at Monday’s meeting, with a view to putting up a plaque commemorating the event. Much though Raymond would like to oblige, the pressure of the agenda will not allow it. PCC needs sufficient time to discuss the new Parish Biscuit Policy, aimed at establishing exactly which children should be allowed custard creams after the service. And which should not!
