Wonderful news as Riding Mill's Rev Alison White becomes Bishop of Hull - the first husband and wife Bishops
Alison and her husband Frank are both constituents and are very involved in day to day life in Northumberland. Alison will be an outstanding Bishop and the people of Hull are very lucky to have her as their new Bishop. There is no doubt in my mind that the changes brought in by the Church of England to allow the elevation of women Bishops is a force for good and a revitalising influence on the church. Clearly the proof will be in the pudding but all the evidence is that this is a sensible evolution not revolution.
