FATHER Roger Arguile has retired after 12 years as incumbent priest of St Mary's Church, St Neots.
Editor of the parish magazine, The Messenger, Ann Williams said: "For 12 years, Father Arguile worked to serve his parishioners and he was a prime mover in putting St Neots on the map."
Father Roger began the annual Ascensiontide Festival as a stage for both local and international musicians, and led the festivities at the switching on of the Christmas lights.
Mrs Williams said: "Roger's wife, Helena, established a lot of good work in visiting and arranging visits to those bereaved both as a volunteer within the parish and in her role as co-ordinator at St John's Hospice in Moggerhanger. They will both be sorely missed by the town."
