To all Green Hammerton Parishioners

As most of you will be aware, our Vicar, Rev. Chris Parkin will be leaving our Benefice at the beginning of February to start his well earned retirement. Chris’s last service in the Benefice will be on Sunday 29th January at Whixley church at 10.30am followed by a farewell ‘ faith ‘ lunch for Chris at Green Hammerton Village Hall. All will be very welcome. If you would like to contribute to this meal with a sweet dish it would be very much appreciated in which case please would you let Helena Leather know so that the organisers can keep track of quantities for catering purposes.

As is our normal practice, a collection for a farewell present for Chris and Linda is being organised by the Wardens in the Benefice and if you would like to make a donation to this collection, would you please give it to Helen Walsh at Swallow Lodge, Back Lane, Green Hammerton, who has kindly agreed to co-ordinate this side of the arrangements for our village.

Many thanks and all good wishes.

David MacDonald
