New Year Message

Dick Farrow introduced our New Year’s address speaker, Father Justin Hutcherson. For the record Dick mentioned that Justin had two young twin children and very shortly another two twins were due!

It was a pleasure to listen to Justin`s inspirational New Year’s address. He told us that he was aged 32 and had originally been a teacher before ordination. He came from Ilford and briefly talked about his social housing background. His family had at one stage owned a chalet in Jaywick and he also, in his younger days enjoyed family holidays at Martello Caravan Park in Walton. (Now a housing estate?).

Justin talked about the need for organisations such as ours to continue philanthropic works. In his own words it was almost an obligation to help others. He mentioned the good work of, amongst others, the Sea Cadets and Clacton Carnival Committee.

The question we could all possibly ask ourselves is “Have we done all we can?”
