WEST BAY MEMORIES

West Bay Methodist Church & Camping in West Bay A lot of years ago, I was about 9 or 10, my family and I used to bring our little homemade caravan to West Bay caravan park.One year we went as usual to the Methodist Chapel for the Sunday Service. At the beginning of the service the Vicar apologised and said that the organist was unwell and unable to play the organ,and we would have to sing the hymns unaccompanied unless anyone in the congregation would be happy to play.My Mother (who was the organist at Wingrave U.R.C. Chapel Wingrave Bucks at that time) said she would be pleased to play. I shall never forget singing The Day Thou Gavest with my Mother playing the organ in that lovely little Chapel in beautiful West Bay. Still one of my favourite places to visit. Sue Bignell
