Introducing ‘Grumpy Parishioner’ or Mrs Beamish or The Buttress…

Say ‘hello’ to a new meme we created: the ‘Grumpy Parishioner’ or Mrs Beamish or The Buttress. Inspired by Grumpy Cat and I’m afraid to say, every church has one!

Grumpy Parishioner


“Don’t you dare shake hands with me, or offer signs of peace” – Mrs Beamish song

Brilliant song by Richard Stilgoe & Peter Skellern about those women you meet in church (the New Wineskins Dictionary calls them buttresses).
