Richard's Farewell

Richard Howells left us in August 2014 to move to Norfolk. A party was held in Harston Village Hall and Richard gave his farewell service two days later to a packed Harston Church. No one present will forget his 'Jane Fonda sermon'!

At Richard’s farewell party, Dennis Owen spoke of the contribution Richard had made to our parishes over so many years. Dennis and Richard were churchwardens together before Richard went on to be ordained. 

Richard served us during the time of Fraser Watts (1991-94), John Parr (1995-99), Nick Jones (2000-03), Peter Wainwright (2005-10), and Brigid Hadfield (2011-18). Ably supported by Brigitte Snell, Richard held the fort during three vacancies amounting to well over four years! That is no mean feat, and we are all profoundly grateful.
