       My dear Friends,
       Well what have you been hearing about the future of our parishes? I thought it
       was about time for me to spell out clearly what is likely to happen!! In every village
       community that I have known, from my childhood onwards, rumours have had a
       wonderful  way  of  circulating  what  in  modern  parlance  is  ‘fake  news’....well
       sometimes it is just only a little off-beat.

       I was appointed in 2015 to a new role as Priest-in-Charge of the two parishes as
       what  is  called  ‘House-for-Duty  Priest’  and  expected  to  ‘work’  Sundays  and  two
       days a week. That means my ‘payment’ is the use of the beautiful house called
       The Vicarage but apart from that, there is no financial ‘payment’. I have found
       such part-time arrangement impossible having worked full-time for so many years
       but I also uncovered the reality that it wouldn’t probably work for anyone.

       The Proposal, supported by both our PCCs  is that our two parishes will be linked
