We very much look forward to welcoming our new vicar – Ashley Jane Hines – to the Benefice of Whittington with Weeford, and Hints, in May.  Ashley and her husband, Roger, will live at the vicarage on Bramley Way, Whittington.

Ashley will be licensed by the Bishop of Lichfield at St Giles’ Church on Thursday 23 May at 6.00pm.

The number of people we can cope with in church is obviously limited but, after allowing for Ashley’s family and friends, visitors from her current church in Great Yarmouth, clergy from the Diocese and Deanery, and for members of the regular congregations at the three churches, we still have some spaces and would like to invite those living in the three villages to join us.

We have reserved spaces for those members of our communities who regularly come to church (‘regular’ being at least once a month) and, if you fall into that category, you are welcome to come to the service on the day without taking any further action.  We hope that you will all come if you can.


If you do not regularly attend one of the three churches but would like to come to the Licensing service, please contact David Clarke, Churchwarden, St Giles’ Church, Whittington (daclarke55@hotmail.comor 07836 334796) to reserve a space.


We hope that we can accommodate all those who wish to come.
