Local surgeon remembered

A late addition to our duties this month was the Memorial Service for Dr John White, late chairman of the Romsey Hospital Appeal, on Saturday 13 January. It proved to be another memorable occasion as a capacity congregation – both transepts were full, guests were seated, unusually, in front of the organ and still others stood against pillars – were treated to the sublime anthem by Edgar Bainton, And I saw a new Heaven, sensitively conducted by the Assistant Organist, Tim Rogerson.
