On Friday evening (Nov. 20) at 7pm at High Bray Church, Brayford, the community will have an informal, quiet, candlelit half hour to come together for reflection to honour those who have been so brutally murdered in Paris, and those whose lives have changed so shockingly. Come to spend this time together to reinforce what we believe in every day in our lives - our "happiness and freedom", and to think of those other values we have so taken for granted, but must now reaffirm.     A moving message from a young Frenchman
