We  look ahead to 2022, provide an update on the Unwrapped renovation project, the Witchfinder musical project and the new Discovery project. There is also a moving tribute to Vic Gray MBE who sadly died recently and we introduce Miriam Stead who we are very grateful to for agreeing to become the new Discovery project co-ordinator. We also pay tribute to Bill Mahood who has stepped down after 12 years of chairing the chapel committee with such skill, and who has guided the chapel through some difficult times with great tact and leadership.
