We are sad to say, that after 21 years of long and dedicated service to the Yorkshire Synod, Mrs Sheila Duncan, our Property Officer (and for 20 years, our Trust and Property Secretary) is retiring at the end of 2019.
Sheila has been known to many in our Synod through her wise guidance to churches in all matters property related and much more, and will be missed by the Synod Team here in the office and by all those who know her around Yorkshire Synod and beyond. She leaves with our grateful thanks for all her hard work over the years.
Sheila was formally thanked at the annual staff Christmas lunch and presented with flowers and other gifts – see photo.
Sheila and husband Willie, are hoping to move to their new home in Alnwick early next year and we pray that this next phase of their lives will go smoothly and would be everything they hope for and more. Sheila certainly deserves a well-earned rest, but once settled both she and Willie will no doubt be involved in URC life in Northern Synod – our loss will certainly be their gain!
