Bishop’s Move… The Archbishop of Canterbury
As you may have noticed in the news or on Twitter this week, much to the public’s delight, Bishop’s Move the UK’s largest family owned removals company, were responsible for the relocation of the Bishop of Durham, Justin Welby, soon to become the new Archbishop of Canterbury.
On 9 November 2012, the Prime Minister’s office announced Rt Rev Welby’s appointment as the next Archbishop of Canterbury. He was formally elected as Archbishop of Canterbury on 10 January 2013 at a ceremony in Canterbury Cathedral and legally takes office on 4 February 2013 at a ceremony in St Paul’s Cathedral when the Dean of Canterbury confirms to a commission of senior bishops that the College of Canons have elected Welby to become Archbishop of Canterbury.
This is the second time in three-years that Bishop’s Move has been responsible for the relocation of the Bishop of Durham. In 2010 the company moved Rt Rev Welby’s predecessor Rt Rev Tom Wright to Fife, Scotland following his retirement. This particular move also included the careful relocation of approximately 10,000 books!
Steve Allen, Bishop’s Move York Branch Manager comments: “We are honoured to have been appointed to handle this prestigious and notable relocation. Located on the South of the Thames on Lambeth Palace Road, Lambeth Palace has been a building of great history and British tradition since the 13th century. It was a privilege for the removal men and indeed our company to ensure the Bishop of Durham enjoys an easy transition into his residence and play a small part in history.”
