Congratulations to the Revd Debs Walton <span style="font-size: 1rem;">on her new appointment!</span>

On behalf of St Mary’s PCC, church members and the Enville community as a whole, I want to congratulate Debs on her new appointment as Vicar of Prees, Edsanton and Whixall and School Chaplain of Thomas Adams and Sir John Talbot, Whitchurch.

Debs began her Curacy at St Mary’s Church three years ago and very quickly, together with Pete and Caleb, became an integral part of both church and village life. Debs mentions in her announcement that her curacy has been a time of learning and growth. For our part, we can say exactly the same.

Debs’s curacy has been both rewarding and challenging, particularly over the last 18 months. However, what has shone through has been her resilience, compassion, patience and her enduring enthusiasm and hard work that we have all seen and benefitted from.

On a personal note, I thank her, wholeheartedly, for her support and encouragement during my time as Warden and, particularly, during the vacancy period.

On your behalf, I wish Debs, and her family, every success and happiness in her move to a new home and appointment.

We will shortly be welcoming our new Vicar to St Mary’s Church, the Rev’d Richard Clarkson.

Rich and his family will be moving to the vicarage in Kinver at the end of July prior to his licencing service on the 9th August. We are looking forward to Rich’s arrival and the start of a new chapter and way forward for our church.

Richard Barron

Church Warden and Chair of St Mary’s PCC
