David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, attended the St. Paulinus Church Crayford Open Day on Saturday 6th October and spent some time talking to 90 year old Church Veteran Albert Bishop. Mr Bishop, a widower, was christened in the Crayford church in 1922, married in the church and for years was a Reader at the church. He has also been involved with the Friends of St. Paulinus and the primary school, whilst continuing to be a regular communicant member. At the open day Mr Bishop spoke to visitors about the church and its history.

Mr. Evennett said “I have known Albert for nearly 30 years and he is a real inspiration.”
