Southend trip
, 2000

An undated picture of Tim Macer and Alan Taylor with Edith and Tricia (who still keeps in contact, with happy memories of their kindness, and of canal trips). They lived in Wapping for a time, and served on the PCC and in our worship, but now live in the Barbican, where Tim chairs the residents' consultation committee. Their civil partnership was dedicated at St Giles Cripplegate (the parish church of the Barbican), and as the links demonstrate, both have significant consultancy and university-based IT careers. We count them as old friends.

The final picture, around the tombola, shows Phil Hogan as a boy (now our chief server and sacristan).
