New church noticeboard is unveiled in memory of Jean

First published on: 14th December 2023

A new noticeboard has been installed outside a North Shields Church. 

The attractive board has gone up at St Aidan's Church, Billy Mill, providing service and contact details for the church. It also has space to promote events and share information with the community. 

The Venerable Rachel Wood, Archdeacon of Northumberland, presided at a recent eucharist at St Aidan's and blessed the new facility.

Revd Stephanie said the new board had gone up in memory of the late Mrs Jean Horton, a long-term supporter of St Aidan's. It was financed using money generously left by Mrs Horton for the church to put to good use. 

St Aidan's now has a noticeboard which matches one installed at St Hilda's, Marden, within the past couple of years. Revd Stephanie expressed her thanks to church wardens Jacq Graham and Sandra Dunn who were instrumental in the arrival of the facility. It replaces an old wooden noticeboard which had reached the end of its natural life.
