Message from Bob Kenway

Dear All,
I am sure you will be aware of the sad and shocking death of 17 year old Ellie Gould last Friday. We have been keeping St Mary’s church open for people to pray and light candles. Wootten’s Funeral Directors in Calne have kindly donated 2 books of condolence with Ellie’s name and a beautiful picture of horses on the cover (Ellie was a keen rider and showjumper). One of these has gone to Hardenhuish School in Chippenham where Ellie was in the Sixth Form and the other is in St Mary’s church for anyone who would like to write a message for the Gould family.
Yours, in love and prayer

Revd Bob Kenway
