A special mention should go to the absolutely inspiring Father Derek from the church next to the barn who was one of the most welcoming and inspiring individuals you could wish to meet. Often we’re given a fairly frosty welcome by some Vicars as they feel that our presence can distract from the meaning of the day, with Father Derek he welcomed us in, made jokes and couldn’t have been cooler.
