Reverend David Kirby’s farewell service was held on the 29th July. It really was a celebration of David’s contribution to the life of St Giles. How lovely it was to see so many friends gather to wish him and Margaret a long and happy retirement in Pocklington.
Last month we were delighted to announce that a new vicar had been appointed to the Parish of Bramhope. Unfortunately, this month we have to advise you that Tracey has withdrawn her application. Although this is disappointing, we have been advised by Bishop Paul and the Archdeacon that they will be readvertising the post as part-time Vicar of Bramhope. This will mean Sundays plus three days a week.
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our Boiler Appeal. To date we have raised in excess of £4800 and by the time you read this magazine our new boiler will be up and running.
I know we say it each month, but we really do value your support at this difficult time.
