A TOWN priest is off to new horizons after taking on a job in the big city.

Father John Pritchard gave his last mass at St Peter’s Church in High Street, Berkhamsted, on Sunday, before joining 200 church-goers for a farewell lunch.

Above, he’s taking part in the church’s popular Petertide Fair last year.

He will now move on to All Saints Church in Margaret Street, London, after spending four years in Berkhamsted.

Mr Pritchard said: “It has been an extremely fun, wonderful time, sharing in people’s daily lives.”

But he said he was looking forward to the “hustle and bustle” of life in a London church near Regent Street.

He will leave Berkhamsted tomorrow.
