Goodbye and Good Luck, Vicar Pete!

THREE village schools came together to say “Goodbye, good luck and thank you” to their vicar and his family as they move to a new parish.
The Rev Peter Ruger – who likes to be known as Vicar Pete – is leaving the parishes of Kingsley, Norley and Crowton where he has served for the last 10 years.
Prior to be ordained, Vicar Pete was a maths teacher, so having three schools to deal with was no problem.
He went on the governing bodies of all three schools – a huge commitment.
Helen Kelly, head teacher at Norley CE Primary, said: Vicar Pete has enjoyed accompanying the schools on residentials, trips out, teaching maths lessons and leading collective worship regularly.
“The children in all three schools have loved having Vicar Pete around and teaching them. They enjoy his company, jokes and interesting stories. He has been there for the good times and has supported them through the sad times too.
“He has been a fantastic support to fellow governors and staff. He has been instrumental in providing pastoral support for everyone in all three schools.”
The three schools came together to wish Vicar Pete and his family well as they move to a parish near Chester.
They spent the day together, having lunch and presenting him with cards and a picture which includes three maps of Norley, Crowton and Kingsley.
The day was so successful the three schools have decided to organise an annual picnic together.
