SYNOD: Farewell

21 February 2014

THE Archbishop of York praised the Bishop of Wakefield, the Rt Revd Stephen Platten, who is moving to a new post in the City of London. He said he had been a devoted advocate of the Great Lakes region in Africa. "He is also one of very few bishops ever to have joined a picket line . . . seeking a fair deal for farmers."
