Up the aisle with Huw Edwards - 6th December 2010

Well that was something I didn't expect to happen in my year as Master.

Huw Edwards, BBC newsreader and anchor man, was the guest speaker at the annual carol service for the communications industry at St Bride's Church, Fleet Street. The Marketors are regular participants and this year I was fortunate enough to be invited to write and read the Bidding (welcome). So we processed in together, behind the wonderful St Bride's choir, who led the music for the service.

As always, it was a wonderful occasion, just nicely focussing our minds forward for Christmas. A big thank you to Archdeacon David Meara, who is also our Honorary Chaplain, and to the whole team at St Brides for making us so welcome.

And afterwards we discovered a cosy bar in the basement of the Bridewell Theatre, thanks to Court Assistant David Williams's careful research and preparation. It's fair to say that a good time was had by all, including the Master who, after her last Court meeting in the chair earlier that afternoon, was beginning to feel a little demob happy.
