Stephen McKenna, pictured, has been appointed Head Nurse after playing a major role during this year’s pilgrimage. Chris Tillotson (Head Handmaid), Jan O’Neill (Deputy Head Handmaid), Tony Kirk (Head Brancardier) and Tony Walton (Deputy Head Brancardier) continue in their current roles.

We thank all of them for accepting their roles and I hope you will join me and wish them every success for the future. We would also like to thank Jean Cornfoot for her time spent as Head Nurse and wish her a continued recovery.

Please note, our pilgrimage dates for next year are Friday 26th May to Friday 2nd June.
