One 2 Three

Tim Lee told us about the event happening at St. Giles church Mountnessing on Bank Holiday Monday 30th of August between 2-5 p.m. He said that many old photos had been found in the vestry at the church that have not been viewed for many years. The thought was that there has to be an exhibition. News of the finds has led to other people providing copies of photos from the history of life in the community. There are many photos of couples being married at the church across the decades. On the 30th of August in the chuchyard there will be a trail for children to search for items and inscriptions. For adults there is the opportunity to participate in a churchyard audit to identify some over-grown graves. The church building is worth a visit, with many interesting architectural features and items.  The church can be found next to a farm on Old Church Lane, Mountnessing CM13 1UR.


Rick Astley – Beautiful life. The album was a UK no 6 in 2018.

Bon Jovi – Do what you can. Released in lockdown last year, the album was a UK no 5.

Jethro Tull – Aqualung – chosen by Tim who said it was a song about an outsider.

Phil Collins – In the air tonight – Tim had been lucky enough to be invited to Phil Collins last concert before he announced his retirement.

Leonard Cohen – Dance me to the end of your love. Tim said that when he hears this track he imagines an elderly couple dancing together.
