The Bishop writes:

The Very Reverend Charles Johnson, Parish Priest of St Alban the Martyr, Salford, Greater Manchester, has informed me of his desire, on Advent Sunday 2020, to relinquish his office as Dean of the Northern Deanery to focus on his ministry at St Alban?s.
I have, reluctantly, agreed to this and would like to thank him, and his wife Pat, for all the help, support and encouragement they have given me and the Diocese over many years.
It gives me enormous pleasure to announce that it is my intention on Advent Sunday to appoint Fr Johnson as an Honorary Canon of the Diocese of the United Kingdom.
