Good news from Southwark Cathedral this morning. Sub-Dean Andrew Nunn is to be the new Dean.
He succeeds Colin Slee who died a year ago.
There was great joy when the surprise announcement was made at the end of the Choral Eucharist. The congregation did not expect the news to be released on a Sunday or hold out too much hope that Andrew would be named since he was already a member of the chapter.
See story on London SE1 website which had it first.
