WSM was looking wonderful in the sun this morning as the benefice gathered for a joint service and the launch of the WSM2016 Appeal. The church was beautified with many fine objects by a previous Vicar, the celebrated Canon Mowbray Smith (I was told the Faculty system was invented to bring him to heel – I’ve no idea how true that is!). The present Vicar assured me that the stained glass panel was both St Peter and female (but may have been winding me up too.) I duly put my tin hat and announced that he was leaving soon after a fine innings there: the actual tin hat is one that saved Mowbray Smith’s life in the first world war.

  1. An announcement went out in the usual way last week embargoed until this morning, so I am surprised that nothing was said. I will check what has happened.

  2. Oh Bishop David – do they know at St. Peter & St Paul Wisbech .? I saw several of their congregation at Walpole Flower Festival today and nothing had been announced !! David Fleming.
