Richard Thorniley – Volunteer Youth Worker and Steering Group Member
I am The Reverend Richard Thorniley, Rector at St James Harvington – a Trustee since 2001 and a volunteer on Thursday evenings at the 7+ group. I love games (fiercely competitive) talking and hearing about the ways of God through stories and sharing. Coming along on Thursdays is one of the best bits of my week – and its so inspired me that in 2004 I started running holiday clubs in Harvington which I have done ever since with lots of friends and helpers
Other Members of our voluntary Youth Team include:

Noel Mobberley – Member of Steering Group
I’m a keen gardener and also have an allotment. I like walking, particularly along the coast and we use our campervan to visit good walking places in the UK and Europe. This year we spent Easter in Amsterdam in our camper which we call ‘Dora’.
