On Sunday 19th April 2015, the following announcement was made:
“The Bishop of Ely is pleased to announce the appointment of the Revd Jeremy (Jes) Salt as Priest in Charge of the Benefice of Buckden with the Offords. Jes will also be the Diocesan Social Justice Co-ordinator working with the Director of Mission.
