Mary Duncan has been a regular worshiper at St Peter-in-the-Wood for many years. In fact, many decades.
Mary is now living in a Care Home – and celebrated her 100th Birthday on 28th May. There was, of course, a cake. And presents. Plus sunshine and large smiles. Mary was on fine form.
The supremely talented Annabel Gunter painted her a Birthday card (see below) of the Church which was signed by numerous parishioners. (It turned out that Mary has a large fan-club in Appleshaw.)
We wish her many happy returns…

Please pass on my greetings and congratulations to Mary. I remember her both at church – where she always engaged with our children – and in her garden in Barncroft where she systematically cut down a tree single-handed! She said it took her a year with a handsaw! A very impressive person!
