Deacon Geoff Spark and his wife, Margaret, celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary in Tenerife on 12 August.

  Before they left Maltby they were presented with a Papal Blessing, organised by Fr John Adikwu, parish priest of St Mary Magdalene, Maltby and Blessed Trinity, Wickersley.  The presentation took place before their holiday to lull them into a false sense of security that their friends would not try to embarrass them further.

  However, while the cat was away, the mice played and held a collection for them as a token of love and appreciation of all they have done and continue to do for the parish.  On 20 August, Mass was celebrated for their intentions by Fr Richard Gomersall and they were presented with a cheque.
