In April 2014, Bill and Val Crudgington will be retiring, after 11 years of faithful and dedicated service at Letton Hall. A new resident couple are set to move in to help manage the Christian conference centre in April.
The team at Letton will be sad to see Bill and Val go, but are immensely grateful to them for all they have done and wish them every blessing as they move into this new season of life.
After some months of seeking God for the right people to replace Bill and Val, the Letton Hall Trust are delighted to announce that Jon and Gill Horrox
, together with their daughter and son, Molly
, will be joining the team from late April. They bring with them a wide experience in both residential and youth ministry and will be a great asset to Letton Hall.
After serving for eleven years in the Royal Air Force
, maintaining aircraft radar systems, Jon worked for Norwich Youth for Christ
for 5 years and over the last 13 years has worked for various outdoor adventure centres, in Scotland and Devon amongst other places.
Gill’s working background started in hotels and catering, then moved on to food sciences. Whilst the children were growing up, Gill acquired administration skills, which allowed her to work from home, and in some of the very remote places that Jon found employment.
The family, have just returned from 4 ½ years in Australia where Jon was working at an outdoor facility run by a private school and Gill ran a canteen for a Primary School.
Mollie is 18 and graduated from High School just before leaving Australia. She is hoping to study Illustration at NUA. She would love to be a published author one day. Archie is 16 and has completed the equivalent of GCSEs in Australia and hopes to study Maths, Physics, Music and Product Design at A level. He is a very keen bass player and loves mountain biking.
Jon and Gill will work closely with Danny and Alison Pritchard
as a management team, to lead the work at Letton and the Trust are excited to how their gifts and experience will bless the ministry of Letton Hall into the future.
