Chris Dowding with Furniture
New Methodist Furniture

Haddenham Methodist Church recently took possession of some new furniture crafted by Haddenham Cabinet Maker, Chris Dowding.

The beautiful furniture is made from American Oak and matches the Communion Table and Minister's Chair that were also made by Chris and the late Roger Newton, at their workshop on Aston Road. Chris is continuing the tradition of locally crafted, superbly finished furniture and can be contacted on 07799 753087.

A generous bequest from the late Florrie and Norman Mann made possible this purchase.
Florrie was a dedicated and well-respected local preacher, and Norman a talented church organist and wood carver. They were both members of the Methodist Church for many years.

Florrie and Norman's daughter, Hilary Smith, recently visited one of our regular Tuesday Coffee Mornings to view the furniture and was delighted with the results of Chris Dowding's work. She felt that her parents would also have been pleased with the use to which their gift had been put.

Why not visit one of our Tuesday Coffee Mornings to enjoy a chat and to view all the furniture in situ?
