Dean with­draws from role

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

The New Dean of Peter­bor­ough has with­drawn from the po­si­tion just over a month af­ter his ap­point­ment was pub­licly con­firmed.

Rev Canon Tim Sledge, who was the Vicar Of Rom­sey in the Dio­cese of Winch­ester, said he had de­cided to step away for health rea­sons as he thanked the Rt Rev Don­ald Al­lis­ter, Bishop of Peter­bor­ough, and the Rt Rev Tim Dakin, Bishop of Winch­ester, for their sup­port.

He stated: “I have in­formed Bishop Don­ald that I have de­cided to take a break from my min­istry at this time on per­sonal health grounds, and as such I have with­drawn from the role I had ac­cepted at Peter­bor­ough Cathe­dral.”

A se­lec­tion panel will now re­con­vene in the next few weeks with a fur­ther up­date pro­vided in Septem­ber.

Canon Sledge was due to re­place The Very Rev Charles Tay­lor af­ter his re­tire­ment.
