North Herts DFAS Church Recorders present the archival record of St Ippolyts Church

Maureen Lane of the North Herts DFAS Church Recorders presented the archival record of St Ippolyts Church to Pam Skeggs during the 09:30 Holy Communion Service today, Sunday 24th April.

The Church recorders have been visiting the church over the past two years and have made a detailed record of all the furnishings, fittings, plaques etc within in our church. This has now been collated into a wonderful document and now serves as a permanent record of our furnishings etc within the church. Copies of this document will be sent to the Doicese at St Albans, The Church of England, the County archive and Historic England.

Although the recorders are all volunteers there was need for a sponsor to cover the additional costs and we are most grateful to Pam for providing this important sponsorship.

Maureen, who was introduced by our churchwarden, Michael Hooper, thanked all those in her team who had contributed to the document and those within our church who had added valuable information, these included, William and Ann Steel, Mrs Jean Andrews and the Revd Ann Pollington. Pam Skeggs responded that it was a privilage for us within the St Ippolyts Church community to have such a document and she thanked all recorders for all their efforts over the past two years. pam then passed on the bound document to the Churchwardens.

The document, although to be stored in the church safe, will always be available for viewing during special occasions and upon request to the the churchwardens.
