On Sunday morning, the 23rd June, I travelled up to the Parish Church of St. Giles in Newcastle-under-Lyme to celebrate the appointment of The Worshipful Mayor Councillor Simon White, with Members of the Borough Council. Together, we formed a procession from Castle House, on Barracks Road, travelling through the town and on to the beautiful Church of St Giles.
During the church service it was announced that Revd. Joshua Penduck will be ordained in November. May I pass on my sincere congratulations to him. From the cheer that went up from the choir, I could see the news was warmly received!
