Annual Parochial Church Meeting
At our recent annual meeting Clare Burgess & Jon Blows were elected as Churchwardens, to be assisted by Sarah Taylor and Chris Drake. The meeting thanked Steph Lacey for her many years’ unstinting work as churchwarden (particularly over the last 6 years) but especially for Steph’s guidance through the interregnum and her determination to ensure that Jane’s appointment went smoothly. Steph is looking forward to being able to devote more time to her lay minister role within the benefice. Minutes of the meeting and reports will be displayed in the church porch.
