Well that was very interesting. My friend from work and I had been invited by our High Sheriff to the annual Service of Justice that was held in Rochester Cathedral this afternoon. We mixed with the great and the good! Various dignitaries included the Clergy, Judges, Barristers, Solicitors, Magistrates, Queen’s Counsel, Mayors, Police, Prisons, Fire and Rescue Staff, CPS, members of the Armed Forces, Bailiffs, the Right Honourable the Master of the Rolls, Lord Lieutenants and Educational Staff.
It was a wonderful procession and a very interesting service, with some really interesting addresses. The fanfares were exciting, the solo singer and the choir were beautiful and we were invited to tea and cakes afterwards! Everything conspired to give us one of those Once in a Lifetime opportunities, and we felt very privileged.
