Di Lammas retired here in 2012 after 17 years as Rector of Hethersett & the Meltons. A Londoner, “Up the Spurs” were among her earliest words, she cannot now imagine living anywhere other than East Anglia. Prior to theological college she ran a hostel for maladjusted schoolchildren and after five years in two Nottingham parishes spent 11 years as a national Vocations Adviser with Church Pastoral Aid Society, returning to parish ministry a year after being among the first women ordained priest in 1994. A cat lover, she plans to adopt one when she’s stopped travelling the world!
