Village Hall full for talk by Revd Canon Dr James Woodward

A packed Village Hall greeted the former Master of Temple Balsall returning to the area after three years to speak on his work at St George’s Chapel, Windsor. Understandably a large proportion of the audience was suspected of being former ‘groupies’ from Temple Balsall but the subject also held a wider interest. James’s combination of dry wit, reputation for excellence on the subject of ‘ageing’ and recent experience on the Falconer Commission on Assisted Dying, his discretion in respect of his current Royal connections, his natural expression of his Christian faith and the work of the Chapel were also a big part of the draw and his talk was very well received.

The evening was only marred by the break-in and theft of a satnav from his car parked outside the Village Hall while he was speaking to The Knowle Society.
