Pauline Porter: Churchwarden

I was born into a loving christian home and grew up in a village in North Staffordshire. We came to Long Eaton over 40 years ago when my husband moved to the area with his employment. I transferred to All Saints Sawley back in 2021, where we felt at home. I love the worship here, the people are friendly and helpful, the work they do to help others in the area is fantastic. It's a great place to be. I was elected churchwarden in 2023.

Joan Suiter: Churchwarden
