Wow!! Now that was a busy afternoon! Even as pampering goes it really was busy. We are so thankful for the volunteers who stepped in and helped with the catering. The kitchen was exceedingly busy!
In the kichen wearing a striped apron and serving soup was our special guest, Mr David Laing, the Lord Lieutenant of Northamptonshire! I must admit to having reservations as to how the afternoon would go but it was amazing. David immediately put people at ease and was so interested in what our fiends had to say. The atmosphere was great and I felt that there was respect on both sides and so many were very keen to be able to talk to David about their situations.
Amidst it all there were lots of haircuts given, hygiene packs handed out and feet washed. Lots of cheerful banter and laughter. I'm sure that I am not alone in feeling quite elated as I left!
I know that the Lord is our very special guest every Sunday afternoon but having David there today was also a real blessing. Thank you to everyone who made the afternoon such a great success.
Next week The Potters House will be catering for us. Have a great week everyone.
