Cathredral Hen Party


undefinedChester Cathedral hosted its first hen party celebration when ten women (all workers at Church House, Daresbury) went on the �Cathedral at Heights' tour. The afternoon event, held last month (July), involved a climb to the top of the tower and a walk around various nooks and crannies in the ancient building.

The excursion was the brainchild of Anne Cody, who works as a PA for the Director of Ordinands and Director of Ministry. 

She explained: “Hannah Lloyd, who works in Social Responsibility and Parish Development for the diocese,  is getting wed in September and we wanted to do something memorable as part of her pre-wedding celebrations.

“We thought rather than just go round the pubs, we would raise our sights a little – so the ‘Cathedral at Heights’ tour seemed perfect.”

The women enjoyed afternoon tea at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Rooms in Chester following cathedral event.

Hannah is due to wed Paul Jones, a train driver, at St John the Evangelist, Sandiway, on Saturday 27 September.

Hannah said: “My hen do with work colleagues was a surprise, and a very lovely one. The view from the top of the tower was breath-taking.”
