SAD NEWS: TIM PRIDE
OWs of younger generations will be very sorry to learn of the sudden death of Tim Pride, lay clerk of the cathedral and a wonderful manager of KPO. He was in very good heart as recently as Saturday 4 April and there is nothing to suggest that his death was related to the current coronavirus outbreak. Our thoughts and prayers are very much with his family at this time. He will be greatly missed.


RISHI SUNAK (H, 1993-98)
Many congratulations to Rishi Sunak on his appointment as Chancellor of The Exchequer.
