On 30 October Bishop Ralph made his annual visitation to Carmel.  This was an extra special occasion as he was invited to bless and dedicate the long awaited refurbished kitchen.

  Carmel is indebted to the many individuals and groups who have given their money, time and skills so generously over the last three years to bring this about.  Particular thanks go to Places for People and Moores Kitchens for providing the units and fitting them free of charge.

  Sixty people, including volunteers, benefactors and service users, enjoyed a thanksgiving liturgy followed by a delicious buffet lunch.
