At the wonderful Choral Evensong service in St. Andrew’s, led by Cantate, the Girl Choristers and Choral Scholars of Portsmouth Cathedral, three beautiful new choir pews were dedicated by the Chaplain, the Revd Wendy Hough.

The pews were donated by Ian and Linda Smith to commemorate their Golden Wedding Anniversary.

The bespoke solid oak choir pews were made by local craftsman Mark Jehan in his Catalköy workshop.

Sincere thanks are extended to Ian and Linda, especially from the choir members, for this fine addition to the furnishings of St. Andrew’s, and to Mark and his staff for their outstanding craftsmanship.
