TRINITY AT SOUTH MALLING: On Sunday July 19, at the beginning of their Communion Service, the congregation of South Malling Parish Church celebrated the 60th Wedding Anniversary of Fred and Vera King of Firle Crescent. Other members of their family were also present. They were given flowers and a birthday cake, which they shared with the congregation at the end of the service, and a card especially made for them by a member of the congregation using photographs covertly taken over the past few weeks. Vera said that the secret of their long marriage was give and take, with the odd falling out and making up before any damage was done. This coming Sunday there is a Service of Holy Communion led by Revd Jeremy Bamber, the Associate Vicar. It begins at 9.30am and all are welcome.
