Min­is­ter’s Grand Tour

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

The Gov­ern­ment’s Min­is­ter for Faith and In­te­gra­tion vis­ited Peterborough Cathe­dral as part of a na­tion­wide ‘Grand Tour.’ Lord Bourne vis­ited the cathe­dral on Fri­day as part of his tour of all 42 Angli­can cathe­drals in the coun­try. Peterborough was the 11th on his list. Dur­ing his visit, he saw how Peterborough Cathe­dral has ben­e­fited from grants from the Gov­ern­ment’s First World War Cen­te­nary Cathe­dral Re­pairs Fund to­talling £738,000. He also met with the act­ing Dean, Canon Jonathan Baker. Through the vis­its he hopes to high­light the role of English cathe­drals as hubs for bring­ing di­verse com­mu­ni­ties and faiths to­gether, as well as cham­pi­oning their roles as driv­ers of lo­cal economies.
