I am Brother Samuel;

I am the Abbot’s assistant and secretary. 

I look after the Abbot, make sure that his wishes are obeyed, and his instructions are followed. I record everything that is happening in the Abbey and organise any travelling the Abbot wishes to make.

The Abbot travels a lot as the Abbey owns farms and land in many areas and there are church taxes to collect. I also make sure that all the church services are properly organised and are on time, especially the Saints days as well as Easter and Christmas. There is much to do all the time as our community not only looks after the Abbey Monks, but it also has to care for the many people from Evesham who work for us.
