Rev Canon Paul Scott celebrates his 60th birthday.

Mr Scott’s birthday happened to fall on the church’s celebration of Epiphany and he was presented with gifts from ‘three kings’; aka the curate, a retired priest and a churchwarden.

The presents included a special book from the congregation containing their good wishes and thanks for his ministry.

He was given a star-covered cake which he and the congregation enjoyed with prosecco after the service.

The congregation of St Michael’s wished Mr Scott many happy returns.
