At the end of the 9:30am Service on 29 July 2018, Revd Martin announced that Martyn Berry would be stepping down from his role as Reader, but continuing to be a member of St Mary's.  The Bishop has invited Martyn to take the title Reader Emeritus.  In recognition of Martyn's 14 years of service, as Reader, the Churchwardens presented Martyn, accompanied by his wife, Jill, with a card and small gift as a token of everyone's appreciation and thanks.
