Goodbye David!

Our chaplain for the last four years, Rev David O’Brien, is moving with wife Ali and son Josh up to Blackpool.

David has been a wonderful and much-loved part of The Uplands family and he will be much missed.

After presiding over his last service in Ruth’s Room, Mark Thorn gave a presentation and some leaving gifts as thanks for all that David has done for use, and then there was a delicious tea with fabulous cakes prepared by Nikki Burton and the team in the kitchen.

We await to see who our next chaplain is – whoever it is has big shoes to fill!
