Stan Hutchings – RIP. Some of you may remember Stan Hutchings (a former churchwarden of St Mary), who died in August. His nephew, Neil Gerring, is walking the Cotswold Way in memory of his uncle Stan on 27th September, and raising money for the Royal British Legion, a cause close to Stan’s heart. If you would like to sponsor Neil, please use the following link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/neil-gerring1
