Judith writes:

“I am delighted that I shall be joining you in the Autumn as Vicar of the benefice of Clitheroe, Downham and Chatburn. I grew up in Lancashire, firstly in Burnley and then in the Ribble Valley and attended Moorland School in Clitheroe for my secondary education, so I really do feel as if I am coming home and I can’t wait to serve the people, communities and area. I very much look forward with much joy to meeting you all.”
