Sunday 26th February, St. Mary’s Church was the venue for a very special tea party for Betsy Stanley. Surrounded by friends, family and neighbours, the High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, Mrs C. R Soames DL presented Betsy with a Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of her long, devoted and loving service to Church and Community.

In the Testimonial, Rev Sharon Grenham-Thompson spoke of Betsy’s life-long service to her community: in the ATS as a lorry driver; working for the Post Office, delivering the post in Shenley and Loughton; tireless fundraiser for the Royal British Legion; and at St. Mary’s as Churchwarden for 14 years, and continues as a key member of the Choir, Sacristan and Verger.
