A Big


Dear All

As many of you may know I have been in hospital and then recovering from an operation for the last few weeks.

By Mid-May I hope to be back in post full-time, although taking it a little easy for a while, and I wish to say a big Thank You to you all for your prayers and help during my illness - especially a thank you to all the Clergy and others who have stood in at All Saints to keep things running.
