St Ethelbert the King is one of the Patrons of Hereford Cathedral & he gives his name to the Order of St Ethelbert, which is a means of honouring men & women who have made their own special contributions to the life of the diocese.
This year Barbara Glasspoole, Churchwarden at All Saints’ Church and Chair of Churches Together in Hereford, was one of the twenty people who were proud recipients of the order.
At a service in the cathedral, the Bishop presented each person with a ribbon, on which was a badge, a certificate & a book about St Ethelbert written by the Dean.
Barbara joins David Bayley, who attends Holy Trinity Church, on the esteemed list of recipients. David received the award two years ago.
