Associate Priest to get Married at St Peter’s

After many years of happily married life and 5 years of being widowed, our Associate Priest the Revd Robin Martin is getting married again – at St Peter’s!
Robin, an experienced parish priest who was vicar of Thurmaston for many years, sadly lost his first wife Elaine to cancer, just before they were due to retire. The first few years were difficult. But in the last year or so Joann has come into his life, and the phrase “happy bunny” could have been invented for Robin!
They are to tie the knot at St Peter’s – then, after a short break, Robin starts a new phase of his retirement ministry based at St James Birstall.
But he’s not leaving us altogether – both Robin and Joann have settled at St Peter’s and made friends here. Joann, originally a Derby lass, was baptised and confirmed from St Peter’s, and although they’ve not been with us all that long, it feels like they are part of the family.
