After thirteen very happy years serving as Rector of the Lower Dever Benefice Mark is leaving to take up a new post a Priest in Charge of Ardeley, Benington, Cottered and Throcking with Walken in St Albans Diocese.
After the Patronal Service everyone came together for a picnic lunch in the sun where Roger Keys made a speech summarising the triumphs, achievements and guidance Mark and Sue have given over the years.
Roger and Melinda Samms then presented Mark and Sue with a cheque and a framed print of South Wonston artist Alison Pearce’s linocut 'Harvest Sentinels'.
We're sorry to see them go but we wish them well and good luck for the future.
