Colin Powell, who was the head teacher at Malden Parochial School, was installed as an Honorary Lay Canon at Southwark Cathedral at a very impressive choral evensong on Sunday 18 September. Colin was being honoured for his work in education both as head teacher and more recently as Director of Education in the Diocese. Also in the photo are Joyce Smart, (who was Colin’s secretary at the school) and former ‘dinner ladies’ Pauline Armour and Monica Drake. On the right is Sandra Davis who also worked at MPS. St. John’s was well represented in the congregation at the service to support Colin.
