Accession Anniversary

Today is the 58th Anniversary of Her Majesty’s succession to the throne following the death of King George VI. This afternoon I attended a special service of Evensong held at St. Anne’s in Tottington to mark the occasion. The service was organised jointly with The Prayer Book Society and was held in the presence of the Mayor and Mayoress of Bury. Following the service, after coffee and biscuits, there was a tremendously informative and entertaining talk on the subject of Coronations down the centuries held in the village hall.
