A lectern made in English oak has been donated to Slingsby Methodist Church in memory of Esther Dennis who was a member of that church and a Local Preacher for over 60 years.

The lectern was made by John Apps of Slingsby (JRA Woodworking) and will be greatly appreciated by those taking part in services there and matches perfectly the other oak furniture.
