A Celebration Tribute to Dr Tim Nuttall

We warmly welcome One and All to the Virtual Celebration Tribute Farewell for Dr Tim Nuttall.  As we are unable to honour Tim with a physical celebration, we have put together this online tribute to try in some way to give Tim the farewell that he deserves.  The Service will follow the Order of Service as above, but will take the form of a series of YouTube  videos that have been recorded and loaded onto our St Stithians College YouTube Channel.  The videos are loaded in order of the service – if you choose to view the videos on YouTube, once each video is complete, you will need to return to our webpage to continue with the service.  Thank you for joining us today – we hope that you enjoy the service.
