Death of the Duke of Westminster announced


undefinedThe Bishop of Chester has issued a statement concerning the death of the Duke of Westminster.

The Rt Revd Dr Peter Forster, said; "The Duke was very well regarded in Cheshire,  and much further afield, for his charitable work and very evident sense of duty. The Duke made very significant contributions across a wide range of aspects of public life. This included taking a close interest in appointments of clergy to the parishes of which the Duke is Patron. He will be hugely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, and we wish his son Hugh every blessing as he becomes the new Duke, with all the responsibilities that he will now assume."
