Jubilee Year at St Luke's

St Luke's was honoured to host one of the first celebrations for HM The Queen's Diamond Jubilee when a Civic Service was held for Accession Day on Monday 6th February in the gracious presence of HRH The Princess Alexandra. One of St Luke's Churchwarden's Councillor Patrick Codd is Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and he hosted the event which attracted some 22 mayors from across London and Surrey. The splendid Tiffin School Choir provided glorious singing for the Service.
