David Carter was appointed as our Director of Music just after Easter 1966. On Sunday 3 April 2016 he celebrated fifty years in post. To mark the occasion David was admitted to the Order of St Mellitus, a very distinct honour reserved for those selected by the Bishop of London as having given exceptional service to the Church in London. The photograph shows David receiving his St Mellitus Medal from the Vicar, Fr Timothy, on behalf of the Bishop.
In this photograph David expresses thanks for the flowers, plants, cards, and cake which he has just received. The cake, made by Churchwarden Sandra Busby, featured musical illustrations in the icing.
David was appointed Director of Music by Fr Brian Horlock in 1966. Fr Brian was our Vicar from 1962 to 1968. We were all delighted that Fr Brian (centre, in the photograph above) was able to make the journey back to North Acton to join us for the celebrations. He was accompanied by his wife, Rosemary.
