Jenny Lyon, who has been Session Clerk at the Old & Abbey for the last four years, has retired from office due to work pressures. Jenny, the first woman Session Clerk the Church has had, brought many talents to the job and was a very able and organised leader. The Old & Abbey owes her a huge debt of gratitude for everything she did during the four years but especially the way in which she kept things going during the Minister’s absence last year.
Jenny was presented with a gift by the Kirk Session as a token of their gratitude and tributes were paid by Sandra Ferguson, Jenny’s Depute and Ian Townsend, a former Session Clerk. Both were full of praise for a job well done.
Many, many thanks, Jenny, and good luck with the studying and exams in the coming year.
