1st Anniversary
Anniversary Party

I can barely believe that it was a year ago that I was found in Stokesley Church vestry and was given the name Stokesley Bear. It was also a year ago that Rebecca moved to the area and started work as Stokesley Circuit Administrator. Rebecca bought me a cake to celebrate our first year. Katherine joined in the impromptu party as we reflected on the past year.

So many things have happened in that time. We have welcomed Andrew and Mandy to the circuit in September and said goodbye to Becci in June. I have travelled around the circuit with Rebecca and beyond as far afield as London.

One of my highlights of this year was going to Methodist Conference at the end of June. I was allowed to sit on the table with the Darlington District representatives. It just so happened that we were on the same table as the Bristol District representatives and they had a bear with them too! His name was Onesimus. We became momentarily famous as a number of people, including the press officer, came to take our picture.

Travelling around the circuit and getting to know people has been fun. Things haven't all been easy especially setting things up but it has been worth the effort. Especially now that we have a new circuit website. I wonder what this next year will bring...
