Elaine is Father David’s housekeeper. She began working for him when he was Parish Priest in St Patrick’s, Heysham, and now travels to Garstang from her home in Morecambe. She is a qualified patisserie chef – but resists making desserts for the Parish Priest, except on special occasions. She is very hospitable to those who visit the presbytery – during funerals in church she looks after the funeral directors with freshly-made cakes and tea! Elaine is a great asset to our parish.
