After some twenty years we say a fond farewell to Avia Machin
Avia, along with husband Eddie, are moving from Moffat to Masham, Yorkshire, in the first week of December 2015
The contribution made by Avia to All Saints Church and its members has been outstanding; for many years a member of Vestry, Secretary to the Vestry, Rector’s Warden, Website Manager, All Saints rep. on the Annandale Group of Churches and always a very accomplished organist when required. Avia developed and maintained the Remembrance Book in the Church and always gave very generously including the marble inscribed stone to mark the Queen’s Jubilee tree in the Church grounds
As a wonderful and powerful soprano, Avia frequently led the singing of hymns, especially the unknown or new ones. Sitting in the rear pews, all were given confidence to sing out.
We will miss her greatly but know that another small church in Masham will benefit enormously from her presence. She goes with our blessings and prayers.
