Charles Curnock honoured by Archbishop of Canterbury

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has announced this year’s recipients of Lambeth Awards for outstanding contributions to the Church and wider society.

Among the recipients is a name familiar to us, our very own Charles Curnock who received The Canterbury Cross for Services to the Church of England for sustained, voluntary contributions to church leadership and governance, the care of the elderly, and political action, as well as direction of two major church renovation projects.

The Reverend Canon Guy Bridgewater, Rector of Bath Abbey, said: “Our warmest congratulations and gratitude to Charles, who has been an invaluable support and great friend to the Abbey for many years. During his time here Charles fulfilled a range of important roles, notably those of Abbey Administrator and Footprint Project Director – and all with the same positivity and infectious enthusiasm with which all will associate him. His work on Footprint in particular has been an amazing testament to his tireless dedication and bright vision. Thank you Charles, and Well Done!”
