Months – years – of searching have, we hope, come to a very satisfactory ending with the discovery of what we think will be a very satisfactory new vicarage for the parish of Kildwick, Cononley and Bradley.
Situated in Cross Hills, with the largest population in the parish, it has space to create the essential “office” element of a vicarage without being so large as to be impossible to heat. The Diocesan property people have made an offer for the house which has been accepted and so we now hope and pray that the well-known traumas of house purchase will proceed as smoothly as possible.
The details of the new post of “Vicar of Kildwick, Cononley and Badley” are now published on the Church of England’s “Pathways” website and we expect them to appear in this week’s Church Times. Applicants have until 21st November to put their paperwork in.
We wait with bated breath…
