FROM CHRIS DEARNLEY

At the APCM on Monday evening, I was handed a card and a cheque to mark the end of my 6 years as churchwarden. It came as a complete surprise and I would like to say a BIG thank you to you all. It has been a real privilege to serve the Parish as churchwarden. The role has given me far more than I could have possibly imagined at the start and I have received love and encouragement from all of our congregations, either when on duty as warden at St John’s or when worshipping at St James’s and St Hugh’s. In many subtle ways, I can recognise a different person from the one who was appointed 6 years ago and I have you all to thank for that.
My love and every good wish, Chris.
