Thank you to all the Lymington Parishioners who sent their prayers and who came to my Dad's Funeral.  It was the best Funeral I have ever been-to! 

The Flowers were designed by Finola Shaw to incorporate my Dad's precious pieces of China from his career as Harrods Fine China Buyer. 

Finola also designed the Light of the World and the Sun and Moon display which you saw last week, at the St Saviour's Flower Festival. She is highly recommended!

There was a stunning Flower Festival at St Saviour's in Brockenhurst this weekend.

 Here are contributions by St Anne's chief flower-arranger, Janet Ward, on the themes of "Fire", "Light", and "Sun and Moon".

Brockenhurst garden fete at St Annes

As our main fund raising event for the year it was a great success. We were blessed with ideal weather and a steady stream of visitors who enjoyed the many varied stalls and the entertainment.

 The parishioners of St Anne's were pleased to welcome Canon Wilkie at their Sunday service to celebrate his diamond jubilee with Father David.  

We had a celebratory drink after mass to mark this special occasion. The delicious chocolate cake went down very well - particularly with the children.

Canon Wilkie cutting the cake presented by the parish to mark his 60th Anniversary of Ordination.  Canon Wilkie offered the 6pm Mass with Monsignor Ryan and Fr Danny.  The celebration supper afterwards was attended by parishioners from Lymington and Milford-on-Sea and finished at 9 pm.

Last Sunday 11 of our young parishioners received Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament for the first time on their First Communion day.  Let us pray that God will keep them safe all the days of their lives.

The Hospitality centre was thronged afterwards and there were refreshments for the children in the Paul Duffy Room, including a wonderful cake.

The lovely Peggy Walsh pictured here with Fr Danny during a visit to her at Birchy Hill Nursing Home in Sway.  Peggy has settled in nicely in her new home and says the staff are 'absolutely marvelous' and those of us who have visited her recently couldn't better that!
