We have seen a number of tragic and fatal road accidents on the roads around Abergavenny lately, at 3pm on Sunday, November 16th we will remember all who are suffering as result of Road Traffic Accidents with a service in the Priory Church.
Just one week after those killed in war are honoured, bereaved families, politicians, and representatives from the emergency services will gather to remember all lives lost and broken on our roads in a number of events taking place across the country. This year the theme for the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is ‘Speeding Kills – Design out Speeding’; inappropriate and excessive speed is a key cause of crashes, road death and injury. RoadPeace is calling for the use of technologies such as speed limiters and black boxes to be fitted in vehicles, as well as a default urban 20mph limit.
INSTALLATION OF CANON
Fr Mark Soady will be installed as a Canon of the Cathedral Church of St Woolos, Newport at a service in the Cathedral on Sunday, November 16th. Having been Licensed by the Bishop of Monmouth, Dean Lister Tonge will install Fr Mark in to his new Canon’s stall.
