I announce my retirement from these parishes with effect from the beginning of May. I find no joy in making this decision.  However, I need to face the inevitable fact that time marches on, and plan accordingly.  

I arrived here in June 2004 and the time with you has been wonderfully happy and fulfilling. Your friendship and support have been of the highest order and it has been a privilege to serve you.

If donations are thought necessary, they should be directed please either to St Mary’s Heating Fund or St Andrew’s Fabric Fund.  

Bishop Ian will shortly be in touch with Vestry Secretaries to discuss the future.
