Treacle tart remembered

30 January 2015

A WINDOW by the leading stained-glass artist John Reyntiens was unveiled recently by the Princess Royal in St Peter's, Farmington, in Gloucester diocese. It was in memory of Bishop Michael Mann, who had been Bishop of Dudley, in Worcester diocese, for a short while before, in 1976, becoming Dean of Windsor and Domestic Chaplain to the Queen until he retired in 1989.

During that time, he oversaw the work of St George's House, Windsor, which regularly gathered together people from all walks of life for informal and private discussions on a huge range of matters of public interest.

He retired to Gloucestershire, where he became affectionately known for his love of treacle tart; so it was appropriate that, after the service, tea and treacle tart were served to the congregation.
