Pastures New

Fred Secombe

$10.99

Paperback
Chronicling the challenges of ministering to a huge parish in Wales, Fred Secombe tells of life as a vicar in the 1950s. This is the seventh book in the series.

- Publisher Fred Secombe is back again with a seventh humorous installment of parish life in South Wales. Fred is now 34 and has left Pontywen for promotion to the larger, more demanding parish of Abergelly. The local parishioners are somewhat set in their ways, forming stiff opposition to Fred's plans, which include renovating the local church and building a new church on the Brynfelin housing estate. Eleanor also finds herself fighting battles, in her case with the council to establish a new doctor's surgery. Determination and good humour rule the day as all obstacles are gradually overcome. Many memorable new characters are introduced, such as Amos Perkins, a Hitler look-alike and Fred's arch enemy on the parish council, Dai Elbow and his wayward greyhound Bella, and the enthusiastic but over-confident new curate, Hugh Thomas.

- Publisher Fred Secombe is back again with a seventh instalment of fictionalized memoirs about parish life in South Wales. Many new characters are introduced, such as Amos Perkins, a Hitler lookalike and Fred's arch enemy on the parish council, and Dai Elbow and his wayward greyhound Bella.
