On behalf of The Executive Committee and all the Members of the Friends, we are so very sad to be losing you but I would like to thank you so much for your unfailing support to our charity on this the last that time that you will be among us albeit virtually as our President before you retire as Vicar of St Anne’s on 23rd May after 20 years at St Anne’s and 40 years total in ministry. 

Fr Nigel you are a well-known and respected figure in the Kew Community amongst both Church Goers and Non-Church Goers as many members whose priority is to ensure this landmark building is kept in good repair for future generations. 

Although the Friends had been founded before you arrived in St Anne’s – I hear it was on its feet and it was your enthusiastic intervention that got it up and running again such an important separate charity and fundraising arm to St Anne’s. 

Your pastoral support in the community reflects St Anne’s Core values – to be an outward looking church and charity and I must add my thanks personally too as a mentor to me over the past 5 years that I have been Chairman invited by you to take the role on not having done anything like this before! 

Thank you, Fr Nigel, – we all wish you happiness and contentment in the next stage of your life – most likely having more time for travelling the world which we know is your passion?
