“I am terribly sorry to be going.” The Rev. William Edward Pilling, Vicar of Quorn for the past 13 years, told the Loughborough Monitor this week. The Vicar announced to his congregation on Sunday that he would shortly be leaving the village. In the near future he is to become Rector of Market Bosworth and Shenton.
In 1933 Mr Pilling left Farnworth for St Margaret’s, Leicester, and in the following year he became curate in charge of St Christopher’s Leicester. He was appointed Rector of Long Whatton in 1937 and three years later he became vicar of Quorn. Mr Pilling is officiating chaplain to the troops at Quorn Camp and until recently held a similar position at Garats Hay Camp.
At present Mr Pilling’s daughter will stay at Loughborough High School, where she hopes to take school certificate next year.
