THANK YOU I would like thank all our friends at All Saints and beyond for all your prayers during my recent admission to the QAH and later at  Southampton General,  following a brain haemorrhage due to a fall back in May. This resulted in surgery from which I appear to be making  a good recovery. I am now back home and re-mobilising.  I have been very aware of all  the prayer support. Thank you all Ian Harding
