Parish Notices Sunday 17th June 2018

The Rector writes “ I know that many of you absolutely love the weekly Random Notes on the back page of the Linksheet and I know this because you tell me so!

They are currently being written by a team of people  : Lesley Roberts,  Roger Ellis,  Simon Woodworth,  Mary Cowhig, and Frances McCarthy.  They would love to expand their numbers and so would like to know if any of you would like to join the Random Notes team?

As you know from reading them each week, the notes are usually about 120/150 words and can be on any subject. If you’re interested do talk to me (or better still talk to one of the team and they can fill you in). The more people doing the Random Notes, the even more interesting and diverse they will                    become !’’


The Select Vestry invite you all to join them in the Rectory Garden for a Barbecue at 7:30pm on Friday 22nd June.  This evening is an Adult only affair. A contribution of 5 euro per person will cover meat & wine and as it would help to know numbers ahead of time, please let Christine in the Parish Office know if you are coming along and if you are able to bring a Salad or a Dessert.

Random Notes  No. CCLXXIII

The late Egerton Shellswell-White recalls…”When I was a child in Bantry House, the wall around the estate seemed like a prison wall keeping me in, not keeping other people out. Just after the war, we had many Spanish trawlers coming to Bantry Harbour. I’d always loved ships, and I also loved languages, so I’d go down and talk to the Spanish and have a great time. In the estate wall, there were five gates, only one of which did not have an arch over it. So I had to run down a hill and jump over that gate to get out. It was easier than having to ask my parents for a key, and it felt like escaping from prison!

Edward Egerton Leigh-White, Egerton’s maternal Grandfather, died in 1920. He was born in 1876 and in 1904 he married Arethusa Hawker, who passed away in 1958. She had enjoyed a fulfilling life as a woman in her day, being actively involved in the worldwide organisation of the Girl Guides. She and her husband reared two daughters; Clodagh, who was Egerton’s mother, and Rachel. Clodagh Leigh-White married Geoffrey Shelswell, and the family name then became Shelswell-White”.
