We, the community of Wittersham, Kent and the church family of our associated Churches, St.John The baptist and St Mary the Virgin, Ebony, wish to register a protest at the proposed retirement of Reverend Judy Darkins, our valued Priest and community member.

We feel that during these strained and worrying times, it would be a great loss to us all in the church and far beyond into the wider community, to lose our Priest who has become an integral pillar of our community. At a time that we are looking for guidance and solace, it is important that familiarity is respected and protected. Apart from the great print Reverend Judy has made on us all and our sense and commitment to community and faith, she has made a huge impression on our young people in our local school. To remove her now when they are dealing with so much change, we believe, would further damage their already fragile foundations. The great work Reverend Judy has done within the school, introducing the children to Christian values and community spirit is keenly felt in all our households. 

We respectfully request an urgent review into reinstating the original date of summer 2022 previously understood to be the planned retirement for Reverend Judy. We feel this would be a fairer and essential amount if time, especially during Covid uncertainty for us to retain a loved, valued and vital part of our church and community.
