Nev Goes Strong at 90

Today, at Coffee Pot, St Paul's Thursday morning group, we were celebrating Nev Lindley's 90th birthday (actually tomorrow). Nev was in very good heart as he reminisced, including wartime experiences as an air traffic controller – when two Halifax bombers collided just by his control tower  – and his experiences as an engineer back in Leicester.
Although widowed for 16 years, he has many family living nearby. His granddaughter had cooked an array of different cakes which all of us who attended enjoyed. We sang a tuneful (?) "Happy birthday" to him.
May Nev have many more years of good health.
It's always good to celebrate anniversaries and of course, in a months time, we celebrate the greatest birthday of all: Jesus birth. Do come and celebrate with us at St Paul's:
Sunday 23 the Carol Service at 6:30 p.m.
Monday 24, Christmas Eve, The Christingle Service at 4.0 p.m. and midnight Communion at 11.30 p.m.Tuesday 25, Christmas Day, Family Communion at 10.0 a.m.
I hope that you will be able to come and celebrate with us.
