Two new church wardens have been elected in a village parish.
Anne Eyley and Brenda Shaw will take over from retiring wardens Mark Hillard and Peter Lord at All Saint’s Church, in Ashover.
Upon being elected, both Anne and Brenda said they were heartened by the confidence shown in them and particularly grateful that both Mark and Peter had agreed to mentor them until they had learned more about their new role.
The Rector, Rev Ralph Lawrence, welcomed the new wardens and thanked Mark and Peter for their dedication and hard work over many years.
Peter will also be resigning after 20 years from his post as church treasurer.
Andrew Lovell will take over the role.
