WMC: February 2017
On the way back from a recent family funeral in Scunthorpe, Judith and Mike Skinner spent an agreeable evening with Judith & Martin Smithson in Bingham.
They watched some Messy Play at the lovely new Methodist chapel and then had dinner with them in the Market Place, as their manse kitchen is being renovated!
The original Bingham Methodist Church was demolished and rebuilt (at cost of £1.9M) to include commercial space, currently occupied by a furniture store & Barnardo's, and with a local pharmacy soon to move in. The local Roman Catholic Church holding their masses there too.
Martin and Judith send their greetings to everyone here at Wantage.
