Sunday Service

The radio alarm woke me up, as usual, this morning and, after the review of the morning newspapers, it was announced that the Morning Service would be from the Priory Church in Great Malvern, Worcestershire, taken by the vicar, the Rev John Barr.

John Boy! Good Lord, that woke me all right. John and I were pals at the old school; the Barrs lived very close to us, in fact. Lovely family, including his parents, Jay and Betty, and his brother Stephen.

As sixth-formers at school, we often shared lifts and a crowd of us spent Saturday evenings upstairs at the George Inn, Clandeboye (now part of a hotel). John was very clever (unlike Timothy Belmont!), passing his exams with flying colours and moving up to Oxford for an MA.
