Road Peace Service, Hereford Cathedral

I attended this annual service on 17th November. It is held in conjunction with Road Peace http://www.roadpeace.org/ as an event of remembrance and hope for those affected by road traffic accidents and was led by the Dean of Hereford, Michael Tavinor, and organised by the Revd. Preb. Jill Talbot Ponsonby. The Lord Lieutenant was represented by Bob Tabor DL, also a former High Sheriff, and Superintendent Sue Thomas, the policing commander for Herefordshire also attended.

It was a solemn and moving occasion, with many who were bereaved as a result of accidents on the road in the congregation. The address was given by The Revd. Canon John Simpson.
