Canon Precentor Philip Banks

The Revd Canon Philip Banks: I have recently moved to Bury St Edmunds Cathedral with my family – Janet (a cello teacher), our two children (11 and 13) and a rescue dog called Kiwi. I have been a school governor for over ten years at primary schools in Essex, most recently in Coggeshall where I was the Rector, and have always had a high regard for teachers and staff who play such an important part in our children’s lives. I’ve been impressed by all I’ve seen in school and by the warm welcome given each time I visit. I enjoy leading assemblies, meeting the children, parents and  teachers and contributing to the life of the school family.
