Clergy and laymen who are co-operating in the task of painting the railings of Stratford Parish Church were surprised some days ago when the Bishop of Chelmsford, in the course of a visit to the church, insisted on doing his share of the work.
Picking up a brush the bishop set to work and painted a portion of the railings. His work would have done credit to a professional. When it was found impossible to raise the £170 required to carry out the renovation work Mr. J. C. Nicholson, J.P., gave the paint, and the call for volunteers met with a ready response. The vicar the Rev. John Merrin, who is rural dean of West Ham, is foreman.
