'Where did you get that hat...?'
'The Day we went to Bushey...'
Monday, July 23rd, 2012 was the day Fr Neil Kelley, still
technically until then our vicar, became Rector of the parish
of Bushey, in the Diocese of St Albans.
An impressively large consignment of folk from 'up north' made
the long hot pilgrimage by coach, car and train to witness his
collation and wish him well.
En route, those of us who went by coach called in at St Albans
to visit the magnificent and vast Abbey, and to visit the
of our most illustrious 'old boy' Robert Runcie, one-time
Bishop of St Albans before becoming Archbishop of Canterbury.
These pictures take us up through the Abbey pilgrimage to the
welcome and pre-service light refreshments in Bushey, and to
St James' Church,
as we watched the choir rehearse before the service. For the
