With great sadness, we said goodbye on 30 August to Rosemary as she officiated at her last service as Priest in Charge of the Benefice. After a very well attended and beautiful service, Simon Gash made a heartfelt speech of thanks, as Rosemary was presented with gifts of paintings, flowers and chocolates, bought as a result of very generous contributions made by all the parishes in the Benefice.
We all wish Rosemary and Andrew a very happy retirement, and are quite sure that neither of them has any intention of giving up work.
The Benefice will now enter an interregnum, with no Priest in Charge, until a successor is appointed. Visiting ministers will continue to officiate where possible. A diary of future services can be seen on the Diary page of this website.
