Remembering people of Barbadian heritage who died of Covid

The High Sheriff was honoured to be invited to the National Council of Barbadian Associations’ memorial service to commemorate members of the Barbadian diaspora who died from Covid-19.

Dr Llewelyn attended the service at Guildford Cathedral along with the Lord-Lieutenant Michael More-Molyneux, his wife Sarah, the Archbishop of Guildford, Dean of Guildford Cathedral, the Rev Canon Gilly Myers and the Rev Charles Morris, Barbados Deputy High Commissioner to the UK.

Rev Beverley Hunt, Chaplain to the High Sheriff, was instrumental in putting together the service and gave the Reflection. Many of the congregation, who came from across the country, lit a candle in memory of those who died during the pandemic and were uplifted by the singing of the Bajan Voices Choir led by Cedric Lynch.

Dr Llewelyn said: “It was a wonderful service and a very fitting tribute. Afterwards all the guests chatted over an excellent tea in the Seasons Cafe where I enjoyed talking to everyone.”
