Wonderful footage taken on 13th June 1954 at St. Bart's, when Father Miller was Parish Priest. Parishioner Gerald Coates was ordained at St. John's Seminary, Wonersh, the day before.

HERE is a picture of Father Coates (in the wheelchair) after celebrating his 60th Ordination Anniversary in 2014. 
Sadly, Canon Coates passed away on 10 October 2017.

The Polyphony Choir acknowledges with gratitude Jupp Fine Jewellery for their support
