Farewell to Ralph Wilkins


Was it really twenty five years ago when Ralph Wilkins, Vicar of Market Lavington and Easterton moved on to pastures new?

Well yes, it was indeed in 1990.

We have recently been given a fairly formal group photograph of the St Barnabas, Easterton, parochial church council at a farewell gathering.
