Chair of the Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury Methodist District Rev'd Rachel Parkinson attended the first Christmas Butty Van gathering hosted at Upper Farm, a mixed farm of dairy, beef, sheep and cereals and the home of Wendy and John Rogers in Gretton, Shropshire.
Following the event, Revd. Parkinson remarked, "The barn was lit with fairy lights. Santa's grotto had been made from hay bales. Sausage hot dogs, mince pies and spiced apple juice were in plentiful supply. The local farming community came out in force, including several families with children. Conversations took me back to my first appointment in rural North Yorkshire. Local vicar, Rev'd Sam Mann, led us in prayer and a few Christmas carols to round off an evening where there was a place for all at God's table."
