As we reported in late December, local curate Ian Herbert has now completed a three-year sojourn in Haddenham and, together with wife Beccy and their three children, is about to move on to pastures new.

The curate's role represents a training stage for newly ordained ministers within the Church of England as they look to become fully fledged vicars, and Ian's departure represents a natural step of development in his service to the Church.

Ian has now been appointed Team Vicar with responsibility for All Saints Chafford Hundred in the Grays Thurrock (Essex) Team Ministry, with Beccy very much in support.

On Saturday afternoon, 16th January, the church family gathered in St Mary's Centre at Church End to celebrate Ian and Beccy's time in Haddenham and thank them for their wonderful contributions to the life of the Church in Cuddington, Aston Sandford and Kingsey as well as here in Haddenham.

Highlight of the afternoon was a 'Flashmob' rendition of "We will miss you!" to the thumping drum-based track of Queen's "We will rock you".

Farewell, Ian and Beccy — we will miss you indeed.
