Pg28: Postscript - "In August 1975 Bishop Charles Grant of Northampton closed down the Travelling Mission. He told me he had reluctantly decided to do this in view of the pending division of the Northampton Diocese in June 1976 and the setting up of the new Diocese of East Anglia. Needless to say there was great sadness in all Travelling Mission Mass Centres. After seventeen years as Diocesan Travelling Missioner I too was greatly saddened! As I mentioned on the first page of this brief outline of the Travelling Mission work I can once again see the day when in order to keep the presence of the church alive in the community today there will have to be another form of mobile approach. Alas I am no longer strong enough to do such work but could, I am sure, give any interested bishops a few hints and tips!"
