Humphris Funerals Christmas Carol Service

Our thanks to all who came to our carol service on 10th December at Marlborough Road Methodist Church, especially as the weather was so awful! It was lovely to gather to remember the loves ones we so dearly miss and also to see so many familiar faces to chat with over a cup of tea and a mince pie.

Our thanks also to Reverend Jean Fletcher and Reverend Stephen Fletcher for conducting the service and to David Upton for playing the piano.

Bloxham and Adderbury Churches Christmas Tree Festival 2019

On 5th December Sue and Lorraine decorated our Christmas trees at Adderbury and Bloxham Church  Christmas tree festivals. This year we have the theme of the Nutcracker with Part 1 in St Mary’s Church Adderbury and Part 2 in St Mary’s Church Bloxham.

Both festivals take place this weekend, from Friday 6th December to Sunday 8th December 2019 and we have left memorial cards on which you can write the names of your loved ones who you wish to remember, especially at this time of year, and then attach to cards to our tree.






We hope you can pop in to see all of the trees in both churches over the weekend, with all the different styles and colours it really is a beautiful sight.

Remembrance Day

As the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month approaches let us take time to remember all those who have given their lives or been injured during conflict to keep us safe. We are forever grateful and we will remember them.

A fitting tribute

James John Denly – ‘Jim’

We recently looked after the funeral arrangements for Mr Jim Denly, a retained Firefighter, and the family wished for us to share some of the photos taken on the day.

Jim had great courage, a determination to put others first and deep honest principles of hard work and fairness. He was a much loved son, husband, brother, father and grandfather and will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him.
