David Cornick's retirement
A gathering that included CTE Presidents, Board members, Ecumenical Officers, Church leaders, colleagues and staff came together in the Guardroom at Lambeth Palace to say thank you to David Cornick on his retirement as the CTE General Secretary. David's wife, Mary, was also thanked for all the generous support and many times David had to be away from home on CTE business.
Guests included Bill Snelson, previous General Secretary, and Celia Blackden and Elizabeth Joy, previous staff members. Presentations were made by Board Members, past and present, chaired by Ruth Bottoms who presented various gifts (including a pasta maker) that had been given by colleagues. A book of 'Thank you' messages collated by Lorraine Shannon in the office, was also presented on behalf of all, and those who could not be present.
Here are some pictures from the evening:
