THE congregation at St Issell’s Church, Saundersfoot has congratulated and thanked Rosemary Hayes MBE on 29 years as People’s Warden.

During this time, she has welcomed many people into the church and played a huge part in its life, serving as secretary to the Parochial Church Council, leading the WI and singing in the choir.

During the last 12 months, Rosemary has spent time training new Church Wardens Hannah Karpaty and Pauline Tiffen.

A presentation on behalf of the congregation was made to Rosemary by the Rev Marianne Osborne. Rosemary will continue to be a member of the choir and to serve during the Eucharistic services.
