With his own petard?

18 January 2013

CANON Bill Stuart-White was installed as Archdeacon of Cornwall, in the diocese of Truro, just before Christmas. People in his former parish of Wadebridge, where he will be much missed as both a priest and a friend, gathered to say farewell, and to present him with gifts.
