Sally leaves Dereham July 2019

An emotional leaving service attended by family, friends, congregations from the Benefice, local dignitaries, and friends from Denmark, ensured Revd. Canon Sally Theakston had a memorable 'send-off'. The service was followed by a finger buffet lunch at Swanton Morley Village Hall. This album is just a 'snap-shot' of many memorable events of the day.

There are 52 photos for this gallery.
