On Tuesday we were invited to St Mary’s Cathedral in Newcastle to welcome our new Bishop Robert Byrne. We enjoyed the service which we shared with all the schools in the Diocese. We hope and pray for the new Bishop as he begins his life with us in the North East.
Meeting WW2 Veteran Tommy
We had the opportunity to meet WW2 veteran Tommy- what an inspiration! He told us all about life when he was younger and about his experiences when he was serving in the army during World War 2. He told us many tales about the food rations they were given, the discipline in the regiment, about driving tanks and narrowly missing being shelled. We could have listened to his stories all day! Thank you Tommy and all our serving and retired military people.
