An ordained minister has been licensed as associate priest at four local parishes during a joyous church service.

The Ven Richard Harlow, representing Bishop Dagmar, granted the position to Rev Jill at the Grunty Fen Group service, which was held at Haddenham's Holy Trinity Church.

The parishes of Haddenham, Wilburton, Witchford, and Wentworth will all come under Rev Jill's care, who will maintain her self supporting ordained minister role.

She is also chaplain at the Diocese of Ely's new offices.
