Liz Hurleys promised kneelers yet to arrive at churchJanuary 16th, 2008 - 2:01 pm ICT by admin
London, Jan 16 (ANI): The kneeler cushions promised by Liz Hurley and hubby Arun Nayer to the parish of Winchcombe after their wedding have not been delivered as yet.
According to the church committee, they are still waiting with bated breath for the handcrafted cushions, which are to be donated to St Mary’s Chapel in the grounds of Sudeley Castle.
Winchcombe became famous when world’s media descended on the castle in March 2006, when the former model and businessman Nayer tied the knot.
After the ceremony, it was revealed the millionaire couple failed to make a donation, usually up to 1,000 pounds for hosting the wedding, to the parish fund.
This was thought to be a lapse on Liz’s part, until she announced that the parish fund would be given kneelers instead.
However, members of the committee say they are yet to hear from Sudeley Castle’s owner Lady Ashcombe that the cushions have arrived.
“We haven’t received any kneelers as yet. They will go straight to the castle so we’re basically waiting with bated breath for Lady Ashcombe to inform us when they have arrived, the Daily Snack quoted Sue Williams, church treasurer, as telling the Gloucestershire Echo.
“We’ve had no direct contact with Liz or her representatives. The issue of the kneelers was discussed at a meeting last week. I suppose they will be arriving soon, but we’ve had no word, she added.
Earlier, Williams had said that the church was disappointed by the lack of a donation.
She said the church had enough kneelers and would prefer cash to carry out essential maintenance, such as for a new boiler at the larger St Peter’s Church in Winchcombe.
Hurley’s agent United Talent Agency was unavailable for comment. (ANI)
