All Saints’ Parochial Church Council and members of the congregation today present Derek and Paula Bilborough for their contribution to the church over a number of years. The presentation was done at the morning service by the Reverend Robin Gill, former Priest in Charge of All Saints’ who now takes occasional services when he is in Hollingbourne.
Although the Bilboroughs never actually lived in Hollingbourne, they have recently moved from Faversham to Dover where they have joined a local church. During Derek’s time in Hollingbourne, he trained to be an Authorised Lay Minister and took many local services both in Hollingbourne and in Leeds. Both Derek and Paula were active members of the Parochial Church Council.
