According to the following notice posted on the Durham Cathedral news section on Friday 2nd April 2010, but subsequently taken down, 12 noon tomorrow, Thursday 6th May, should see the Dean and other members of the Cathedral community — no doubt along with a good number of well-wishers from outside — gathering for the Cathedral Shop’s official opening:
I take this opportunity to congratulate all concerned and wish them every success for the shop’s future under the Cathedral’s more enlightened ownership: may it truly be a resource centre that the Cathedral can be proud of.
With the notice having been taken down and no fresh information posted it’s unclear whether or not the official opening will go ahead as announced. If you’re planning to travel any distance, it may be wise to call ahead: full contact details for all Cathedral departments here.
- For the shop staff, as they continue to seek justice after several years of bullying and intimidation by the Brewer brothers.
- For the Cathedral authorities as they come to terms with their responsibilities after several years of evasion.
- For grace and wisdom for everyone involved as the shop staff and the Cathedral authorities learn to trust one another and work together.
- For openness and clear channels of communication.
