Saturday 30th September

Suzie and I attended the McMillian coffee morning with daughter and son-in-law at the Old Police House in Tynwald. Well hosted and supplied with cake by Paddy and Vicky Moore. Not sure of the total raised but it certainly was into the hundreds. Tabitha was the lucky winner of the raffle cake.

The afternoon saw us at the enthronement of the Right Rev Peter Eagles as our new Bishop of  Sodor and Man. Probably the first and only enthronement of a Bishop we will attend. A very pleasant service in Peel Cathedral, good to see the place packed. My first brief meeting with our new Bishop, I suspect he is going to have a bit of baptism of fire with the first Tynwald sitting in a couple of weeks’ time where the order paper will, I am sure, be extensive.
