New chaplain for Kelling Hospital

kelling hospital 360AT2018: Rev Janet Stewart has been appointed chaplain of Kelling Hospital, near Holt, replacing Rev Robert Doe who has taken ‘early retirement’ aged 96.

The Revd Robert Roe had been part-time chaplain at Kelling Hospital, near Holt, since 1993. At a reception held in his honour on Wednesday, February 21, he told guests that he originally came just for just one year – because the local rector, who had been asked to become rural dean for one year, could not continue doing it.
The reception was attended by family and friends, including his daughter Catherine Chalmers, from Norwich, who said: “He’s amazing. We have been joking that he’s retiring at 96.” Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust chairman Geraldine Broderick also attended.
He has been replaced by the Revd Janet Stewart, who has been on the chaplaincy team of the Norfolk and Norwich University hospitals. She said he would be a hard act to follow.
