New President of the Friends

While we were doing the research for our Anniversary weekend, Michael Jones noticed that the Friends had always had a President and several Vice Presidents. There was a long list printed on the first page of the old triennial reports. Somehow this had lapsed after the big 2006 review. Looking down the list, all but one of the august names were no longer with us, and it set us thinking. After a discussion at the Council meeting in May, we decided to revive the tradition as part of the way of marking our 60th Anniversary and to approach the Bishop of Ramsbury, who is well known in the parish. Michael described him at the AGM as ‘a mover and shaker in the area, who jogs, cycles and rows with many people around here’. We were thrilled when he accepted the invitation. Bishop Ed (as everyone calls him) came to start our Anniversary weekend in July, when we were delighted to announce that he is our new President and give him a guided tour of the church.
