The Dean of Wakefield's wife Pamela Greener has written and performed a campaigning ditty in the demolished nave of Wakefield Cathedral as part of the CofE campaign to halt Government VAT plans unveiled in the budget. The YouTube recording has been sent to the Chancellor, George Osborne's Office and HMRC.

The cathedral is one of thousands of CofE buildings that will be affected if the Government goes ahead with introducing VAT on listed building alterations. Campaigners are being urged to sign the two e-petitions to bring back zero rate VAT to alterations to the CofE's 12,500 listed churches.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter, Christ is Risen Alleluia!

The Easter Services at St Marys included the Stations of the Cross on Wednesday evening with thoughtful reflections at each station followed by the evening office of Compline, a very moving Maundy Thursday evening service, and a reflection on the Passion on Good Friday. On Easter Even the Easter Vigil service included 7 baptisms, and on Easter Sunday morning St Marys was resplendent with flowers to celebrate the Resurrection
Some photos of the wonderful flowers are shown, including the new Pascal Candle and the Resurrection garden..
