On the 5th September we bade farewell to Charles and Susan after 13 years at the Tower
Amongst many things, Charles will be remembered for promoting the growth of the music department, achieving the high standards of our cathedral style choral tradition, facilitating the return of women and the introduction of girls in the choir. He was also instrumental in the formation of the Choral Foundation and maintained our offering of both Choral Matins and Evensong on a weekly basis. Charles played a key role in the acquisition of Tower House which has enabled partnerships with our wider community and was responsible for the birth of our hugely successful annual Christmas Tree Festival.
Susan will always be remembered for her tireless efforts and constant practical and emotional support to members of the congregation.
Thank you and Goodbye to both of you and have a long, healthy and happy retirement
