A thankyou from HM the Queen

Many of the people of the diocese will remember that last year we collected signatures from the members of our churches to send a message of congratulations to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her diamond jubilee.

One of the Churchwardens of All Saints Rome, Sandra Annovazzi, arranged for the collected signatures to be bound into a handsome volume (held by Deacon Frances Hiller in the photo) which sent on to Her Majesty.

Buckingham Palace has sent a warm thank you to us for this gesture. I attach a copy of the correspondence.
