After 44 years of caring for the 12th Century Church of St Mary in Wissington (Wiston), Gerald Knox has decided it is time to ‘pass on his stave of office’ to the next generation.
To mark this amazing achievement, The Revd Mark Woodrow, Priest in Charge, presented Gerald with a special Long Service Award on behalf of the Diocesan Bishop, The Rt Revd Martin Seeley, in recognition of his dedication and loyalty.
The Bishop also agreed that Gerald, should be granted the honorary title of Warden Emeritus.
Gerald isn’t retiring completely from church life, he has agreed to remain as treasurer – a position he has faithfully fulfilled for a mere 30 years!
