The Order of St Ethelbert – Honouring Long Service

On Sunday 15th October a special service was held in Hereford Cathedral to honour a number of people who had been recognised for their long service and contribution to the work of their churches in parishes all over the Diocese. From Ditton Priors, Margaret Griffiths received her award which was richly deserved.

Margaret, who is known to many both in the church and around the community, has tirelessly sought to help people, visit the sick, and has been churchwarden, verger and a member in the Mother’s Union.

A party of over 30 people from our local parishes attended the ceremony which was combined with a service of choral evensong and was a truly beautiful occasion.

Margaret would like to say thank you to all who joined her at the cathedral and those who sent their good wishes.
