ERIC HAYDEN REMEMBERED
Following news last weekend that Eric had died, we have this lovely recollection from Ewart Grant:
‘Eric, who was the last Priest of Chitterne , Tilshead and Orcheston before they were grouped with Shrewton, came to us from a busy Sussex parish as a first step to retirement; he was part time in title but did not know the meaning of part time. He together with Daphne his wife ministered to the three Parishes tirelessly. He was often to be seen striding the village street and conversing with those he met. An abiding memory of him was to see him rush out the Church, even in the middle of a sermon, and bring back any parent who had left through a disruptive child; it was through actions like this that he transformed a group of church goers to a community of faith.
I am sure there would have been a nod and a wink as he passed St Peter going through the Pearly gates.’
Ewart Grant Churchwarden emeritus.
