Update on Revd Hugh

Since Christmas Hugh has been in Hereford Hospital, and has then been staying in Ledbury, with Joan who is looking after him.

He has been very ill but is now much better, and out of hospital.

He is going to need ongoing treatment and has decided to remain in Ledbury and settle there.  He hopes at some stage to be able to come back to Finchampstead and say Good Bye, but in the meantime he thanks everyone for the fellowship he has received over many years.
