Today I said goodbye to Tom.
Who first popped up in chaplaincy in my first term here. Who first turns up on this blog here.
Once upon a time Tom wanted to be a physicist. Then he got involved in chaplaincy, and in SCM and in his local parish. Tom has in a real sense accompanied me on this journey. He has watched chaplaincy grow from nothing to something. He was there at the beginning of Boldrewood Tunnel Soc and became it's only president.
Eventually Tom joined the staff of the chaplaincy and supported me through this year.
And then yesterday was his last day.
Thank you Tom for everything. I wish you well in all you do.
