Resume for Churchwarden role

I have now been in post as Church Warden for about 18 months (the first year's appointment being made during the ‘lockdown' year and therefore not in April). I continue to learn all the time – most significantly over the past 3 weeks as I have, with Caroline, been covering the vacancy in the church office.  
There is what feels to be a never ending list of tasks to be addressed with relation to the building and efficient provision of church services but I am enormously grateful to Caroline for her unfailing support as well as many others who work tirelessly behind the scenes; between us, we are keeping our heads above water!

The role of Church Warden

I have been attending this church for many years, but since April 2021, have also been fulfilling the role of one of your church wardens. This is a challenging one, but I enjoy striving to serve the church and community as best I can, with particular reference to the historic fabric of the church building and its churchyard setting. There has been a lot to learn – and there is a constant need to learn more in all its aspects. Your support is essential and greatly appreciated. Without that, and your enthusiasm to take on or continue in the countless volunteer tasks of the church, our role would be insupportable. Thank you. 
My career involved me in 25 years in heritage management as part of a conservation management team, involving project delivery and strategic planning. Consultation with other agencies was important in this, with a view to maintaining the value of historic places (their ‘spirit of place’) and sharing their ‘story’. In personal terms I think I am a sensitive, caring and thoughtful individual. My strengths are in an enthusiasm for working closely with others to achieve common goals. 
I am enjoying being part of the growing ‘vision’ of our church here and in supporting the staff and church community in new challenges that lay ahead. Thank you all for your support so far, and I hope, continuing into a further year.
Caroline Thackray
