The Very Rev Stephen Waine said:

“Communities around the country had events planned for VE Day which have now been cancelled, including Chichester Cathedral.

LETTER SUBMISSION – MAY 8 2020

Dear Editor

Dean of Chichester Cathedral, The Very Rev Stephen Waine, says [‘Chichester Cathedral marks 75th Anniversary of VE Day’, Eastbourne Herald, May 8)

“We are delighted to offer this online service for those at home, as well as to be encouraging people to take part in the Big Picnic For Hope, as a way of remembering the heroes of the past and present”

With hope, I will also be remembering a past hero – George Bell, Bishop of Chichester – one of the greatest and bravest wartime bishops of the 20th century.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Richard W. Symonds

The Bell Society

 

 

RESPONSES TO LETTER SUBMISSION

 

“Thank you for sending me this. I am sure it will not be given a fervent welcome, either in the Deanery or in the Bishop’s residence. I’m afraid that Martin Warner’s seemingly total lack of a conscience, or of an understanding of the requirements of justice, leaves me ever more frustrated”

Revd B
