Mr Pipes had noticed a reference to Josef Heu on the St Aidan’s web site and got in touch with the Vicar, Revd Canon Alan Taylor. The plaque was handed over on Wednesday of this week and during the Maundy Thursday service Canon Taylor rededicated the plaque to the greater glory of God and blessed it. A decision will now be taken where to position it.
A picture of Canon Taylor with the plaque is attached along with notes on the life of Josef Heu. Further information can be obtained from Revd Canon Alan Taylor 0113 2486992,
