Jaap Jacobs (Vestry Member) Jaap writes: “I am a writer and historian, academically affiliated with the University of St Andrews. After moving from the Netherlands to Dundee in 2012, my daughter Johannette and myself joined my wife Martine in attending services at St Pauls. The cathedral congregation is very warm and welcoming and we have been made to feel very much at home here. I wish, on Vestry, to offer my skills and time at the disposal of the congregation. The ambitious plans for the renovation of the cathedral will require a considerable effort from all of us, especially of vestry members”
