  3. 3. Letter from the MinisterDear FriendsThis is the month when we celebrate our 75th Anniversary!Alistair reminded the Elders at our May meeting of those first 35 people who had the vision to plant a church here in the village of Hayes, and of the strength of dedication, vision and faith they had. Just 35 people walked forward in faith to make this church a reality, not just in bricks and mortar, but in people and in service; a church that would serve all people of all denominations and none, one that would welcome everyone who came through the door. And for 75 years we have done exactly that – we have held the vision and walked the path and been God’s church in this place.We rightly celebrate our history, and hope many will come and visit thisAnniversary Weekend, from Friday 8th June to Sunday 10th June, when we will be open with a Flower Festival and with our Historical Documents on display.Anniversary celebrations are not just about looking backwards, but about being in the present and looking to the future. We have much to celebrate in this special year, and much more to look forward to in our future. As we work together to seek God’s way, He will hear our prayers and lead us forward in service to the community around us.75 years ago those 35 people were given the vision to build this church – what might the next 75 years hold?We can be sure it will be exhilarating!

The meeting closed with a hymn and prayers led by Sue. Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation (BASR)I recently visited Israel and went to Bethlehem where I was privileged to go to the Centre which was founded in 1960 as one of Leonard Cheshire Homes. Nowadays it is a non profit, non government organisation that is nationally recognised for comprehensive medical and rehabilitation services it renders to beneficiaries from different parts of Palestine, particularly those with disabilities regardless of gender, age, religion or social class.BASR has worked progressively upon its commitment to enhance the overall quality of life of persons with disabilities and other vulnerable groups inspired by its mission for their total inclusion into all aspects of community life. Since its inception BASR has diligently developed innovative programmes and services that meet the emerging needs of the Palestinian Community.I wish to propose that for the year 2012/2013 we support this organisation as our Mission Abroad. The people working there do so much good work, many are Christians but nobody is ever turned away be they Jew or Muslim "Every Patient is First and Foremost a Human Being". I plan to bring this before the Church Meeting on 22nd July for members’ approvalFor those who wish to know more I have a brochure which I received on my visit detailing the work carried out.Margaret Tannock Ive learned...

The way things once were From The Nottinghamshire Almanac for June 1841.

  17. 17. Iris Joan Williams 21st May 1929 - 15th April 2012 -------------------------Iris was born in Whitechapel Hospital and lived for a short while in Bethnal Green before moving with her family to Chingford, where she grew up with her two younger sisters, Olive and Jean. After leaving school she worked as a GPO telephonist, which helped her to shake off her Cockney accent! It was whilst working at the GPO that she met a Teddy-boy named Donald Williams, a go-ahead chap who soon became her husband. Donald’s retail business brought them South of the Thames. They lived for a while above one of his shops in Crofton Park, before moving to Mead Way, Hayes, by which time their two children had arrived - Ian and Hazel who, with their mother, came to Hayes Free Church.It was about this time that Iris and Donald joined the local Lions Club, through which Iris was introduced to charitable causes of various sorts, which she continued to support for most of the rest of her life. One of the earliest of these was the Multiple Sclerosis Club, at that time based in Coney Hall, where she took her wheelchair-bound members out on trips and organised parties for them. At the Bromley Cassette she helped in the mailing of their talking local newspapers for the blind, and for several years she worked for KAB (The Kent Association for the Blind), helping in a variety of ways, including acting as a dance-partner for blind members. At Hayes Fee Church she teamed up with Ivy Mant and Joan Carter to help run the Over-60’s Club (which later became the Friendship Club), a very happy venture.Sadly, in late middle age, Iris’ marriage broke up and she moved to Downham. For a while, whilst she continued to drive a car, she seemed happy enough and was able to maintain all her social and charitable activities; but eventually deteriorating sight and other health problems forced her to give up driving, and this greatly impeded her out-going life-style. Reluctantly she agreed to move to a retirement flat at Blenheim Court, where she could benefit from more frequent social activity. However, only a few days before she was to move she suffered a massive stroke, which not only hospitalised her but left her both frail and nearly blind. After four months she moved into the flat, but she never settled there, and life became increasingly difficult. A relapse led to another spell in hospital, but she was looking forward to moving to another, more suitable, nursing home which Ian and Hazel had found for her when, on the day of the scheduled move, she had another stroke from which she never recovered. She died in Orpington Hospital on April 15th. Continued on Page 16 ........ 15
  18. 18. ........ Continued from Page 15 We shall all remember her for her cheerful, chirpy personality, small in body, but large and caring in heart. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, who loved and cared for her so deeply. Martin Nunn (With grateful thanks to Ian Williams, on whose tribute this is based.)
