"We had a wonderful concert with our cathedral choir last night (Friday) with a completely full nave listening to some Coronation music.

"And then today we’ve live screened the whole of the Coronation and people have been coming in and out watching various parts of the ceremony, some people staying here for the whole event.

"We have had our friends from the Penny Appeal providing tea and coffee, and had refreshments provided by the Bishop of Wakefield.

"So all in all, it’s been a wonderful week.”
