After seven years as parish priest at Market Rasen’s Holy Rood Church, Father Tom Breslin is moving on to pastures new.

A farewell event, with food, live music – and even a visit from Elvis – was held in the festival hall, where members of the congregation made a presentation to Father Tom.

“I am going to miss the people here,” said Father Tom.

“They are all wonderful, so lovely, helpful and supportive. “It is heartbreaking to say goodbye.”

Father Tom will take up a new role as parish priest at St Wilfrid of York in the Leicestershire town of Coalville.
