"I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to my extremely generous leaving gifts and to all who came along to make my farewell so special. I've enjoyed a wonderful career in the Diocese and will miss friends and colleagues very much."

Debbie retired at Christmas and colleges and friends said a special goodbye to her at a special farewell tea, held at South Canonry.
