Alison is a rare sighting on this blog. So partly in honour of her birthday – partly because the registration process for the spouses’ outing at the Lambeth Conference required it – we thought it was time for a photo. Readers of the Church Times will have noted Caroline Chartres’ concern about the – shall we say – domestic arrangements at the University of Kent. All rooms are single and ‘the organisers cannot guarantee that spouses will be accommodated in adjoining rooms to their husbands ..’ or words to that effect. Sounds like an event to savour! So the rapids and overfalls of the Falls of Dochart symbolise one’s feelings about Lambeth joys to come.
