Chaplain moving on

The summer has come to the colleges: with blue skies and warm weather.

The grounds people and collegians’ gardening group have working hard to make the grounds look smart and colourful.

Collegians are getting out to see family and friends and are welcoming visitors again. The coffee mornings and drinks outside in convivial groups is returning the colleges to some kind of normality. We hope to bring back the good from before lockdown and perhaps improve on the not so good.

Bins have been removed from the tunnels in the quads which will please our fire assessor in August, and a complete maintenance plan has been prepared by Fairthorn Farrell and Timms so that ongoing renovation and works can be scheduled for the short, medium and long term.

My news is that I am leaving here at the end of July. I am joining a community called Bewith that is being created at what was All Hallows convent in Ditchingham. The community will be a praying and working core to a place of hospitality to young people and their leaders, where they can encounter God in nature and nurture.
