April’s “Out and About” was filmed at the Live Lambing event at Millmoor Farm, courtesy of Sally-Ann & David Chesters. There was a splendid turnout on what was the hottest day of the year so far. It wasn’t just Veronica who got to cuddle a lamb…..

At a truly joyous licencing service on Tuesday 28th November 2017, Veronica was granted her Licence as Priest-in-Charge of our combined Benefice. The licence was granted by The Suffragan Bishop of Birkenhead, The Right Reverend Keith Sinclair representing the Bishop of Chester, in the presence of the Archdeacon, the Venerable Dr Mike Gilbertson, the Rural Dean The Reverend Canon Ian Davenport QHC and the congregation drawn from the combined Benefice, led by the Church Wardens. Other members of the clergy from the deanery and neighbouring churches were also present as were Nigel and members of her family. Afterwards, the congregation enjoyed a magnificent spread in the village hall kindly provided by the good folks of Marbury, thank you.
The picture above shows Veronica making her Declaration to the people of her Acceptance of Office, before the Bishop.
Rev’d Ian Davenport, Rev’d Veronica Green and Right Reverend Keith Sinclair
Congratulations Veronica. No one could put our feelings better than Mike Valentine, representing Cheshire non-conformist churches who in welcoming Veronica, caught the mood of the evening when he misquoted the carol, proclaiming “Hark the Herald Angels sing, Veronica Green you’re just the thing.” You certainly are!
