Just a quick thank you to Phil and the other standard bearers mentioned that made my debut as PWSTS standard bearer so enjoyable. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to representing you all at many more.

Thanks for the pics Phil, as can be seen it was a fine, calm but cold day ( it never rains at these events huh?) with a full church and very well supported by the local community and it was a pleasure to be there.

As mentioned elsewhere in this forum if anyone wants the PWSTS standard to be paraded at an event in their own area please let me know and I'll see what we can do.

Best regards,
Mike
