A popular village vicar who served Read and Simonstone for more than 15 years is to retire.

The Rev. Dr Alan Sowerbutts has been the vicar at Read St John’s and Simonstone St Peter’s Church since 1998.

The 65-year-old has been an avid fund-raiser with the church and was active with the choir and also played the organ at St John’s.
