BRIAN Kimber who has just stood down as a church warden after six and half years and a regular church attendee for over 30 years and has maintained the flag that flies in St Mary’s churchyard for 15 years. He was presented with a large key mounted symbolising all his work for the church. Brian who was genuinely surprised said afterwards: ''I would like to say a very big thank you to all concerned with the lovely gift I was recently given by Tetbury Church. It was such a shock that I was emotionally overcome and didn't say thank you in person. I hope, health allowing, to be of some use to the Church I love for a long time yet."
