Bishop Graham presenting Mike with his letter of thanks

The Rt. Rev’d Graham Usher, Bishop of Dudley, presents our organist Mike Selby with a letter from the Bishop of Worcester congratulating Mike on his retirement after 60 years of playing the organ at Cleeve Prior and the Littletons.

Mike began as organist on his 16th birthday in January 1959, and has played at worship on almost every Sunday since. He has also served as Bell Ringing Master, Tower Captain and Church Warden. Along with his wife, Julia - who is also a bell ringer - and their children, the Selby family have made a huge contribution to the life of our church, and we mark this occasion with deep gratitude. Well done, Mike!
