In your name

Well done Bath Abbey in showing such public support for a European country under attack – and thanks to the Grapes in Westgate Street for letting me use the image they took last night of the tower lit in Ukrainian national colours.

Sorry to hear that communications officers Lucy and Elaine have left their jobs at the church for a similar post at Royal High School. Hope the vacancies are filled quickly so l can continue to communicate with the Abbey.

Meanwhile am also hearing that the new Discovery Centre – which will feature many artifacts from the long history Christianity has on this site will now not be open until October.

The lighting of the Abbey in blue and yellow, the collections all over the UK

And kind offers to accommodate Ukrainian refugees are all deeds to be proud of.

However, the map below shows a government acting in a way that shames us all.
