|+||====== Boy Bishop introduced at St. Nicholas service ======|
|+||The middle ages tradition of having a Boy Bishop [[http://en.wikipedia.org/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.|
