Kensington MP Visits Hyde Park Children

Lady Victoria Borwick, Member of Parliament for Kensington and former Deputy Mayor of London, was a special guest at a recent Sabbath Day service at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Hyde Park, London. The service featured a presentation by the young children aged 3 to 11, who shared in words and music the things that they had learned atchurch so far this year.

After this special service, Lady Borwick MP was presented with her personal family history which had been researched over several weeks by the youth group of the church. These young people created an information pack that was filled with photographs, stories, copies of public records which included names, dates and places. The pack was given to Lady Borwick as a token of appreciation for her visiting the church. Lady Borwick commented on the hard work and effort that the young people had put into the project.

Bishop David Hooson, the local leader of the Church for the Hyde Park 1st congregation said, “The church is well known for its interest in family history research and we were pleased to be able to surprise Lady Borwick by presenting her with her very own, family history.”
