He co-wrote a book on pastoral care of frail older people to present to the diocese which accompanied a report on older people in ministry. Don said “It has kept me active although I am beginning to feel my 78 years, so I am slowing down a bit.” Guest speaker for Sunday was Arch Deacon Caroline Campbell who is the head of the house hold of deacons in the diocese. A cup of tea and biscuit was available for those who attended and celebrated Don’s contribution.
