Farewell And Hello In Brussels

Lucy Paton has been working at the Bishop’s Brussels office since September 2015, first as the administrative secretary and then since January as his Personal Assistant. Bishop Robert says; “I have been fortunate to have her energy, enthusiasm and a keen eye for detail to what is a very demanding role. In a short space of time she has got to know the Diocese well and has served my Staff Meeting as minute secretary.” Lucy Paton is to join her husband in relocating from Brussels to Rotterdam in August. We wish her well as she moves on and hope that she will keep in touch with the Diocese.

Her role is being taken by Gail Wilmet, who comes to the position of Bishop’s PA having had huge experience over many years of working as PA to, amongst others, the President of the European Parliament. She has been helping out at the office since June 2015 and so she is ideally placed to ensure a smooth transition in August. Her first full day in post will be at the beginning of September.
