I felt that I ought to publish this letter. The pleasure that it gave me, I want to pass on to you.

July 4th, 1934.
" Christ Church" Vicarage,
Bradford on Avon,

Dear Mr. Parr,
I was struck by the tidiness of your Churchyard when I was in your district a year ago, and if I remember rightly you had a board in the Churchyard with a scale of fees which people were invited to give towards the upkeep of their graves.
I am anxious to help our P.C.C. to put our Churchyard in order and would be most grateful to you if you would be so kind to tell me how you finance the scheme.
It may a satisfaction to you people to know that their care of "Gods Acre" has inspired other Churches to do the same.
Yours Sincerely,

I am glad to be able to say that Mrs. Gwynne Holford of Hartbury House, Gloucester, has consented to open the Bazaar.
We are fortunate in being able to secure the help of one who is evidently very interested in so much that concerns Bream. I happen to know she particularly admired our Churchyard and the way in which it is kept.
This piece of information should give encouragement to stall-holders and others, who are already hard at work.

" Members of Christ"
July 8 - Denise Margaret, daughter of Thomas and Gertrude James.
July 12 - Michael Anthony, son of Allen and Dorothy Brain.
July 13 - John, son of Reginald and Nora Hall.
