|Snowie being presented with his diocesan medal by Bishop Kieran|
Charles or as he is affectionately known 'Snowie', had worked in industry for many years, but on retirement was able to indulge his two passions for motorbikes and photography as he would zoom around the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton to all sorts of events and occasions taking photographs for the diocesan paper A&B News. He also helped in the preparation of the paper each month with other volunteers. After long and dedicated service he decided to retire from these volunteer roles.
The Bishop agreed that after such long and committed service some sort of recognition was deserved and so he agreed to honour him with the diocesan medal of St Philip Howard. Those gathered at the annual Advent Mass in Crawley were of one mind with the Bishop and gave Snowie a heartfelt round of applause.
Many congratulations to Snowie and may his second retirement be as long and happy as his first one!
