Final Thought from the Rector and Mrs Rector

Liz and I have been part of the Wykeham Benefice for nearly 7½ years now, and, after 44 years of work, the time has come for retirement. We were not expecting to move from our previous parish in Kent, but came with the words “You will be blessed” ringing in our ears. And we have been. Now is the time to say a heartfelt thank you to the many parishioners who have become friends, who have entertained us, included us in their family occasions, taken us to dinner, to concerts, and on holiday. You have been a constant support to us week by week, and have enabled us to love nearly every moment of our time in this most beautiful part of north Oxfordshire. We leave with mixed feelings; I shall not miss PCC meetings! but we shall both miss all of YOU and the six church families which have become very precious. Thank you for all that you have been to us.

Ronald and Liz Hawkes
