At our May meeting we had a double helping of Normas!

First, CAMEO member Norma Barton gave us a fascinating account of her work as an Alton Street Pastor. The Pastors are out and about every Saturday night, their aim being to take God's love to the streets and show it in practical ways. Norma has the honour of being the "Senior Member" of the team.
