 +====== Boy Bishop introduced at St. Nicholas service ​ ======
 +The middle ages tradition of having a Boy Bishop [[http://​​wiki/​Boy_bishop|Wiki]] ​ was revived in our church to celebrate St Nicholas'​ day which falls on December 6th.  Our Boy Bishop was in fact a girl Harriott Uren who carried out her duties with due decorum and dignity reading the lesson and also leading prayers. ​ Traditionally a Boy Bishop would retain his position until 28th December, Harriott was pleased that she was only installed for the day.
 +After the service Father Christmas made an unexpected and somewhat noisy entrance, playing the role of St Nicholas by distributing sweets to everyone.
