The Dean of Salisbury Cathedral (the Very Reverend June Osborne) – who is one of the Vice Patrons of our Guild – has been appointed to be the next Bishop of Llandaff.
On behalf of the whole Guild our President has written to the Dean offering our congratulations and thanking her for her support of ringing in the diocese during her ministry at the cathedral. At a recent service at the cathedral, one of our Vice Presidents, Ross Robertson, met the Dean and said to her that it might be possible to have as many Diocesan towers ringing on the day of her consecration as possible and she rather liked that idea! Her final service in the Cathedral is on Sunday 9th July, and she will be consecrated in Brecon Cathedral on Saturday 15th July.
If your tower is able to arrange any ringing for either of these dates please do so and please let me know – I will then collate a record of the ringing to send to her and publish.
Robert Wellen – Guild Master
