A joint Farewell Party for Rev’d Dermot Thornberry and his wife Charlene – was held on Friday 17th July - by Caversham Methodist Church, Gosbrook Road and Caversham Heights Methodist Church in the hall at Caversham Heights.
About 100 people from both churches assembled to say farewell. A sumptuous buffet supper was prepared by members of both churches and, judging by the empty plates, it was enjoyed by all!
Following supper Eunice Cooper, Senior Church Steward at Gosbrook Road, and Viv Emerson, Senior Church Steward at Caversham Heights, both made speeches of appreciation and presented gifts to Dermot and Charlene.
The evening concluded with a time of fellowship.
We wish Dermot and Charlene every blessing for their move to pastures new in Paignton, Devon, where Dermot will take up his appointment from the 1st September.
