Rector blesses a new pub in the Parish

Clergy, News

After leading an Armistice Day Service for the British Legion at the ancient Saxon church of St Nicholas, Worth our Rector, Canon Anthony Ball, walked the short distance to the newest building in the parish – the Coaching Halt pub.  After a short prayer of blessing for the building as a place of welcome and hospitality for travellers, refreshment & relaxation for members of the local community, and employment for many local people (as well as the home of the pub manager Steve Arnold and his wife) Canon Anthony took part in the opening ceremony of the pub alongside Crawley’s Mayor Bob Burgess and his wife Brenda.
