The rector of Staplehurst, Canon Gill Calver, has added another string to her bow.

Five months after being appointed an honorary canon of Canterbury Cathedral, she has been made a chaplain to the Queen, an honour which allows her to wear a red cassock and to preach at one of the Chapels Royal once a year.

She has joined a rota of chaplains who are available to the Queen at any time and is entitled to wear as special silver gilt brooch marking her role.

See this Friday's Kent Messenger for full story.
