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."
Fr Roger was given a cheque from his parishioners and a painting of a view of St Neots by the Churches Together group. He is moving to the north coast of Norfolk, where he hopes to be able to catch up on his reading and do some writing as well as pursuing his hobby of sailing.
