The Lord Mayor of Canterbury, Cllr. Terry Westgate, and the Sheriff of Canterbury, Cllr. Jeanette Stockley together with her escorts and Darren Ellis, the Civic Manager, were treated to a tour of the city by our excellent Guide, Andrea Russo who, undaunted by a recent back problem, used a mobility scooter to do the tour!
The tour started from Tower House and included visits to the Poor Priests Hospital, the site of the Roman Theatre, and of course the Cathedral Precincts and The Kingâ€™s School.
Andrea recounted much of the cityâ€™s history and how Canterbury had become â€œThe Cradle of English Christianityâ€ and is known as â€œThe Mother of Englandâ€ which is the motto of AVE MATER ANGLIAE on the cityâ€™s coat of arms.
